Here’s a prayer of petition and commitment, or an opening prayer of invocation inspired by 1 Samuel 3:1-10. It was posted on the Vanderbilt Divinity Library website.
(inspired by 1 Samuel 3:1-10)
by night and day you summon your slumbering people,
So stir us with your voice
and enlighten our lives with your grace
that we give ourselves fully
to Christ's call to mission and ministry. Amen.
