A Prayer for Thursday, July 16

Dear God,
  Remind me that you have called me by name and sent me into the world.
  So often I get focused on you and I, the relationship we have.  I want to spend more time with you, and I want to hear what you have planned for me, and I see the rest of life as a distraction.
  But you have called me into the world, into community, into a life of service and love. You have gifted me for a purpose so that I may life with purpose, serving those around me, showing your love to the world.  I am not here just for me, but to be a part of a community, demonstrating what life in your Kingdom is like.
  Remind me of this, Lord, and help me live as a disciple, constantly in search of ways to serve you by serving others.
