“Keeping God’s commands is what counts. Each of you should remain in the situation you were in when God called you.”
Worthy Master, you have designed us to be uniquely effective, and our gifts are yours to request.
Train us to be community builders, champions of integrity and your faithful followers. Until you call us for greater tasks, may we honour you with holy joy in the situation you have chosen for us.
Through Christ our Lord we ask this; called to be an obedient servant and now seated on your glorious throne.
