Prayer for the week beginning 27th January

The calling of the disciples

Matthew 4:12-23

Lord,

open our ears to hear your call

as you opened the ears of Simon and Andrew

and James and John.

Help us to not allow the busyness of life and the noise of the world

to drown out your still small voice,

and give us the courage to leave our nets

and all that holds us back,

that we may become your disciples in every part of our lives.

May we bear the cost of discipleship with willing hearts,

as we seek to serve and follow you each day. Amen
