Prayer of Commitment: August 28, 2011

Offering Prayer / Prayer of Commitment
(based on Exodus 3: 1-15)

God,
just as You called Moses 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 follow where You lead without hesitation or fear,
trusting that Your presence goes with us,
and that You will provide all that we need.

Amen.
