Commentary on this Week’s Prayer
As much as we’d like to think so, we really don’t know all there is to know. As much as we’d like to think that our way is the best way, it isn’t. This week’s watchword calls us to pray that we would first seek God’s way before our way.
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.
