Mark 16: 15 (NRSVA)

15 And he said to them, ‘Go into all the world and proclaim the good news to the whole creation.

Lord, you knew strength of purpose

A purpose from which

you refused to waver

even when confronted

with all manner of temptation

and in the face of death itself.

You knew the things

that were yours to do.

May we, in these days of confusion

know your purpose

your will for our lives.

May we discern

what is ours to do

and glorify you

by getting on with the tasks

that you reveal are ours

for this day

and this hour.

And, amidst all the competing voices

that call us in so many directions

may we hear clearly

and unequivocally

the voice from heaven

that assures us 

that you have got this

- that you are God

and we are not

and your call to us today

is to stand firm

to be still and listen

and to follow

wherever you lead

bringing glory

to your Name.

For love’s sake.
