Thursday’s Prayer: Called to This.

And no one takes this honor on himself, but he receives it when called by God, just as Aaron was.- Hebrews 5:4

Lord God, thank you for calling me to serve where I am. Thank you for the vocations to which you’ve called you.  You called me to be a husband and a father.  You called me to serve in many various ways in your kingdom, in your world and in my family.  It’s such a gift!  Forgive me for those times when I think of myself more highly than I ought.  Forgive me when I become proud in my positions as though someone owed something to me for one reason are another.  These callings are not honors I’ve taken on myself, but you, Lord, in your grace and mercy have given them to me.  You have called me to serve as your representative in so many ways throughout my life, dear Lord.  Help me to see the privilege of my callings and use them to bring glory to you.  Amen.

Refuel: Leviticus 26
