{Day 30} Two Prayers

When I began this series 30 days ago, I approached it with a rather long list of questions regarding our {God given} callings. And to be honest, most of those questions remain unanswered.

But as I intentionally searched Scripture and earnestly sought the Lord in order to better understand our {God given} callings, the questions changed, faded, and lost their place of importance.

In place of the questions, I found perspective restored, passion refreshed, and purpose renewed.

And somewhere along the way, as the questions faded, as Christ became the focus, as our highest calling became clear, these two prayers emerged:

“I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and his incomparably great power for us who believe.”

– Ephesians 1:18-10 (NIV)


“You gently call me into your presence, guiding me by Your Holy Spirit.
Teach me dear Lord to live all of my life through Your eyes.
I’m captured by Your holy calling.
Set me apart, I know you’re drawing me to yourself.
Lead me, Lord, I pray.

Take me, Mold me, use me, fill me.
I give my life to the Potter’s hand.
Call me, guide me, lead me, walk beside me.
I give my life to the Potter’s hand.”
