Commentary on this Week’s Prayer
The kingdom of God looks VERY different that the society in which we live. Today a leader would hardly be seen as one with a broken spirit or a contrite heart. But humility is right where we begin our relationship with God. It is not brash, bold, or demanding. It is a humble approach to an awesome God.
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.
