Prayer for January 29: Please pray with me. God of life, you call to us to follow you. How often do we do that half-heartedly? How often do we think we are doing the bare minimum to keep you happy? How often do we go hold back from following you? What are we waiting for? Do we think we get to retire from following you? Do we think that you let us off the hook after we do so much work for you? Do we think that you work on transactions? You are a relational God that comes to us, calls us, and sends us out. Give us what we need to follow you. Amen.
