September 26 – Noon


Amos answered Amaziah, “I was neither a prophet nor the son of a prophet, but I was a shepherd, and I also took care of sycamore-fig trees. But the Lord took me from tending the flock and said to me, ‘Go, prophesy to my people Israel.’

(Amos 7:14-15)


Dear God,

You called Amos, a simple shepherd, to be a prophet and to speak Your word to the people of Israel. Like Amos, I may feel inadequate or unqualified to do the work that You have called me to do. But I pray for Your strength and guidance, that I may be obedient to Your call and speak Your truth boldly, even in the face of opposition. Help me to trust in Your provision and to rely on Your power as I seek to fulfill the purpose that You have for me.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.
