One: Moses said to God, “I am slow of speech and slow of tongue…”
All: but God sent him anyway.
One: Jeremiah said, “I am just a boy…”
All: but God spoke through him anyway.
One: Mary was perplexed by the angel’s visit,
All: but God still invited her to give birth to Jesus.
One: God invites us to understand that we have gifts and we are needed: whether old or young; tired or energetic; quick or slow. Whoever we are, however we are,
All: we hear your call, O God. We have come.

Morning Prayer Concerns and Celebrations
Prayers of the People and Lord’s Prayer
Our Mother-Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name.
Thy kindom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kindom, and the power, and the glory, forever.
