Prayer of the Week

Dear LORD,

How often do you speak our names and we do not hear because of the noise and confusion of the world and our own deafness?  Our prayer is to not only listen as Samuel did, but to respond by saying, “Here I am, Lord.”  Please imprint on our hearts and minds that we cannot accept the fear culture that is present in our society and also be ridiculously generous with our offerings and talents.  In the name of the One who still calls us by name.  Amen.
