Commentary on this Week’s Prayer
We have been living in a state of anxiety for the last 3 months now, and there seems to be no end in site. So read this week’s Watchword prayerful, pondering its meaning for 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. To get more information and purchase your own copy of the Moravian Daily Texts, or to sign up to recieve them via email go to http://www.moravian.org/daily_texts/ You can find more information about the Moravian Church at http://www.moravian.org/ .
