Prayer of Commitment: Stepping Out in Faith

Here’s a prayer of commitment or closing prayer based on two of the scripture texts for Proper 9 B (Ordinary 14 B).

Prayer of Commitment
(based on 2 Samuel 5, Mark 6: 7-13)

just as You called King David so long ago,
so You call each one of us
to speak and act on Your behalf in our world today.

Forgive us when we are hesitant to follow:
when we question Your call
or make excuses for our abilities;
when we complain about our lack of time
or hoard our resources.

Give us courage to step out in faith,
to go where you send us without hesitation or fear,
trusting that Your presence goes with us,
and that You will provide all that we need.
