Commentary on this Week’s Prayer
We must remember that prayer is not only our chance to share our deepest thoughts, joys, and concerns with God, but it is also a chance for us to be silent and listen to God’s leading in our lives. So just as we pray that God’s ears be attentive to our prayers, we must also pray that we might be attentive to God. This is a two-way conversation that, when held day after day, can and will change our lives.
How to use these prayersGreetings Friends: These prayers are meant to be prayed either in community or in solitude. If done with a group this can be read as a responsive prayer with a leader reading the regular print and the rest of the group reading the bolded print. These prayers are posted at the beginning of each week and are based on the Watchword for the Week as found in the Moravian Daily Texts.
