But Moses said to God, “Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh and lead the children of Israel out of Egypt?”

Exodus 3:11

It has always been our answer to your every command and mission given to us, O God our loving Father: “who am I to do this thing?” or “who am I to go there?”

Forgive us for our pride, God, when we ask you such questions with some tinge of sarcasm, or worst, when we seem to dare to make you look so dumb as if you have never thought well of every thing you entrust us with.

Yes, there are times when we ask you that way like Moses when we play god better than you, almighty and living, true, God.

We could not believe and accept that you have planned everything well, that all we need to do is trust you like a child.

Like Moses, O God, tell us to remove our sandals to always remember and be reminded that the whole earth where we stand on is a sacred ground, your very presence among us.

Teach us take off things that detach us from you and prevent us from completely trusting you.

Most of all, take away our pride and fill us with your humility so we may be open to your revelations to fully know your will and how to make it happen. Amen.
