O, God our Father, whose love for us never ceases, cover Yourself in glory through our attitudes and actions this day; remind us that you are close to us, indeed in us, as we move through our work and that this is your work into which you invite us, your plan that we walk out earnestly albeit imperfectly,your love that we demonstrate to the world; help us to rest in the scandalous privilege of belonging to You. It is in the precious name of your son, Jesus, that we pray.
“Put in general terms, the purpose of God’s call is for the people of God to worship God, and to participate in God’s creative and redemptive purposes for the world, to enjoy, hope for, pray for, and work toward God’s shalom. This is what it means for Christians to be in Christ and to follow Christ.”
