Praying in Easter with USPG:

Throughout this week, the USPG Prayer Diary is focussing on Climate Justice and the Church of Bangladesh

Patrick Comerford

Our churches remain closed because of the Covid-19 pandemic, but I am continuing to use the USPG Prayer Diary, Pray with the World Church, for my morning prayers and reflections throughout this Season of Easter.

USPG (United Society Partners in the Gospel) is the Anglican mission agency that partners churches and communities worldwide in God’s mission to enliven faith, strengthen relationships, unlock potential, and champion justice. It was founded in 1701.

Throughout this week (10 to 16 May 2020), the USPG Prayer Diary is focussing on Climate Justice and the Church of Bangladesh. This focus was introduced in the Prayer Diary yesterday morning by Rebecca Boardman of USPG.

Monday 11 May 2020:

Pray for the Church of Bangladesh’s disaster management work. May it succeed in its objectives of education, raising awareness and risk management.

The Readings: Acts 14: 5-18; Psalm 118: 1-3, 14-15; John 14: 21-26.

The Collect of the Day (Easter V):

Lord of all life and power,
who through the mighty resurrection of your Son
overcame the old order of sin and death
to make all things new in him:
Grant that we, being dead to sin
and alive to you in Jesus Christ,
may reign with him in glory;
to whom with you and the Holy Spirit
be praise and honour, glory and might,
now and in all eternity.

Yesterday’s reflection

Continued tomorrow

Hello Sir Patrick Comerford, May 11,2020

I have worked on my BA Degree in Theology online, in the last four years from the Grand Canyon University. I enjoyed the last class I had, before I graduated, on the study we did on Theologians and how they became great teachings of Christianity in their field of interest in life. I'm happy to say that I was able to save the email information that I was able to receive from your blog on a daily bases. I want you to know that I still receive them emails daily over a year later. I was really inspired by your writings and pictures of the churches I was able to continue to enjoy a year after I got my degree. It is an honor to finally be able to write to you in person. I have a facebook page under the name Margaret Hope. My last name during the study was Ruskamp before I got married to my wonderful husband Stephen Hope, who is also on facebook. Stephen is a Deacon at the Church here in Terre Haute, IN called Time of Refreshing International Ministries. We got married at this church in 2016, but in my online class I wasn't able to change my last name to Hope before I finished.
