Oh, Lord, may I never not hear your calling for me to come. May I never be too busy, too overwhelmed or too hardened not to hear your still, small voice calling my name to come out of the darkness into your presence. I long to hear your voice. I long to rise quickly and come. I lift my prayer in your holy name above all names, according to the good and perfect will of the Father. Amen.

“When she had said this, she went and called her sister Mary, saying in private, ‘The Teacher is here and is calling for you.’ And when she heard it, she rose quickly and went to him.” (John 11:28-29 ESV)
