Invocation for Pentecost 18
O God, who through Jesus calls us to service, we confess that we don't always understand or wish to accept what you ask of us. We are caught up in our own desires for recognition and security that we miss how you define what is the greatest way to live. In our time together this morning, center us in childlike faith and wonder, that we may more clearly see what it means to love you, one another, and ourselves. Amen.
