Called

Dear Called,

Gracious God, you call us into the vineyard to labor.

You call us into schools and offices, into nursing homes and stores, into factories and onto the streets, to labor with you, gathering your harvest in all times and places.

You call us wherever there is need of your healing word.

You call us wherever people hunger and thirst for righteousness.

You call us wherever people mourn or bow beneath the yoke of oppression.

Grant us the faithfulness to answer your call whenever we hear it, not troubling to judge whether we were among the first called or the last; let us simply come to your side to work with our brothers and sisters to welcome all people into your commonwealth of peace. Amen.

Please refer to Matthew 21:1-11 for further reflection.

Prayers: The sick, the well, the poor, the rich, and middle class, all who mourn, and those filled with joy. Specifically we ask for prayers for all who mourn Vera Peters, grandmother of Brad Corrigan who leads our mission partner Love Light and ‘Melody (LLM). Vera’s funeral will be held today at 11am at St Andrews United Methodist in Highlands Ranch. Let us also pray for the blessing of Holy Week which we embark into this Palm Sunday.

Still in one peace,
Pastor David J.Jensen
