Prayer:

Lord Jesus: you call me to follow you; to turn away from my own self-interest, and to take up my cross and follow after you, even if the path is difficult to see, or is heading in a direction I would never have chosen for myself.

Forgive me for being so quick to question and so hesitant to follow. Help me to see with the eyes of faith, rather than from my own human point of view.

Teach me to follow you without fear, knowing that you are always with me, leading the way to eternal life. Amen.
