Lord Jesus, the first people to follow you were fishermen.
They heard Jesus' call and left their work to become fishers of people.
Help us to be willing to listen for the promptings of your spirit.
Help us to make the space we need to hear what you want us to do.
Help us not to drown out your spirit's call
by the background noise of our daily rushing around and busyness.
Help us not to be afraid to follow you, even when the way you are calling us to is hard.
And help us to be ready to tell others that you are calling them to follow you, too. Amen.
