Great Lord of Heaven and Earth,
You have called your people. Throughout the years you have spoken to us, directly to our hearts, and led us to a new understanding of how we are to live. We have heard your voice, and so often ignored it. Open our ears, Lord, so that your voice might not be ignored. We long to hear and to have the courage to follow, but the path is narrow, and the commitment is total. Call us once more, so that we might try once again to follow your Word, to love you completely, honestly, and more than we ever thought possible.
