through Jesus Christ,
You call us to follow and to make disciples
despite the fact that we are sinners;
But You qualify the unqualified;
sending us out to do important work;
announcing that the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
may we remember
that it’s not about our abilities or knowledge
but rather about Your Spirit giving us what we need.
May we never disqualify ourselves
but rather trust in You,
who qualifies the unqualified,
and that all quality is of Your doing.
And through the quality of Your work in and through us,
may the quantity grow to Your glory.
In Jesus name we pray,
The Pastor -|—
