1 Samuel 8.21
Samuel took in what they said and rehearsed it with God.
what attitude, lord, what dedication to your calling. may we not fall away from your purpose for us, may we not stop doing what you've called us to do no matter how heartbreaking the circumstance we're facing, no matter how difficult the challenge or opposition at hand. may we see your grace, instead, may we always hold on to your bigger picture, that even with a heavy heart over something we know deliberately hurts you we will not stop doing what you've called us to, being who you need us to be, making sure we don't get in the way of your work and what you want to do - the good that you always do. thank you lord for a chance to get to follow you and live life with you.
