Praying from Matthew 9:9 relating to Call, Discipleship, Obedience
Dear Lord Jesus, as you passed by Matthew sitting at the tax collection office, you saw something in him that made you call him to follow you. I pray that you would also see something in me that would make you call me to follow you. Help me to hear your voice and to respond with obedience, just as Matthew did. Give me the courage to leave behind anything that would hinder me from following you wholeheartedly. Thank you for your grace and mercy that enables me to follow you. In your precious name, I pray. Amen.
Verse: As Jesus passed by from there, he saw a man called Matthew sitting at the tax collection office. He said to him,“Follow me.” He got up and followed him.
This is a Command: Follow.
