Let us pray.
Lord, I am before you today having got ready for the day this morning. Showered, teeth brushed, hair done, clothes ironed, walking out the door. Challenge me today Lord. Challenge me to be ready to be called into your serve in ways that are not flattering, but in ways that are humbling. Call me into your service in ways that show me strength that I did not know that I had before. Remind me that I am dust and to dust I shall return as I serve others in any way that you call me. Today Lord, lift up the child-like faith in my heart. Lift up the relationship to others as the joy in me to serve you and send me with your mission laid on my heart. It is in these things that we pray, in your Holy and Precious Name, and all God’s people said, AMEN.
