Lord God, you have called your servants to ventures of which we cannot see the ending, by paths yet untrodden, through perils unknown. Give us faith to go out with good courage, not knowing where we go, but only that your hand is leading us and your love supporting us.
Gracious calling God, call on us with Your grace again and again. Renew us daily in the peace, hope, and eternal life we have been promised and which we have been called to proclaim. As we wait for things to move, for opportunities to be bestowed upon us, may our patience grow and our faith be strengthened. Give us Your help again, just as You have always done. Remind us of Your care. Let there be gratitude in our heart, for all that is needful has been sent and ordained for us already.
We remember, God, you are the One who called us first.
But these things I plan won’t happen right away. Slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches when the vision will be fulfilled. If it seems slow, do not despair, for these things will surely come to pass. Just be patient! They will not be overdue a single day. Habakkuk 2:3
