Prayer for September 27: Please pray with me. God who we follow, you call to us and we respond. Although…do we? Or do we practice selective following – following when we want to. Lord, forgive us when we think following you is something that we can pick and choose from. You call us to be all in, not grazing from a cafeteria. Shake us. Change our direction. Open our eyes to see that following you is a full person commitment – not half-hearted. You want to whole us, not the leftovers. Shape us into your followers. And send us out to serve, to proclaim, to love. Amen.
