A Collect to be Available for God’s New Call to Us

Lord Jesus, our great teacher and master, keep us flexible and humble, that we would be ready for those times when you call us to new things, things that are so unlike what we have dedicated ourselves to, but are your call to us for the good of the world and for the flourishing of our souls, through you who with the Father and Holy Spirit holds all knowledge and wisdom and authority. Amen. ‘For he and all who were with him were amazed at the catch of fish that they had taken; and so also were James and John, sons of Zebedee, who were partners with Simon. Then Jesus said to Simon, “Do not be afraid; from now on you will be catching people.”‘ – Luke 5:9-10
