God calls, we respond… not the other way around.

Every day, every night, O Lord, we come to you to pray.

But so often, we forget we merely respond to your call when we pray.

How sad that when we pray, we come to you demanding you, asking you for so many things without us realizing that we pray primarily to ask you what you want us to do for you!

We are not the masters telling you, O God, what you must do or give us; we are your “unworthy” servants who must ask what you want from us.

May we allow always the Holy Spirit to direct our prayers the way you would want it to be because…

“We know that all things work for good for those who love God, who are called according to his purpose.”

Romans 8:28

Instead of being so concerned with how many or how few would be saved, may we focus more on how to “strive to enter through the narrow gate” of salvation.

Direct us, O Lord, to your holy will in the way you would want us to fulfill it. Amen.
