Responsive Prayer: John 21: 1-19


Here’s a thoughtful prayer litany based on John 21: 1-19.  It was written by Rev. Nathan Decker.

Prayer
(inspired by John 21: 1-19)

Lord, save us from ourselves.
We continue to do the same things over and over,
expecting different results.
Lord, save us from doing too much.
We go fishing every day,
not noticing you waiting with a meal on the beach. 
Lord, save us from doing too little.
We say we love you,
and yet so often we neglect your sheep.
Lord, save us from ourselves.
Help us to hear and respond when you say, "Follow Me."
