Prayer for Guidance in Our CallingPosted: April 10, 2013
One of my friends recently created the above design for the prayer entitled “For Guidance in Our Calling.” The month of April is notoriously stressful around the seminary campus as students and their families finish the final month of waiting before receiving their vicarage placement and calls. It’s a hard month of watching the unknown future approach, so this prayer is especially fitting for all those waiting for placement and calls.
Of course, this prayer isn’t only for seminarians and pastors. Uncertainty and unknowns are part of everyone’s life. But as Christians, we can trust our Father to care for us through all of life’s unknowns. Even when our faith seems weak and our fears seem to be overtaking us, God is there to lead us and care for us.
Some of you might be wondering why this post is more serene than my usual writings. Well, even the craziest of lunatics have moments of lucidity, and today seems to be a good day for clearheaded thought and peaceful reflection. Don’t worry, I’m sure I’ll be back to my neurotic ramblings in no time!
