So this is my prayer today: that we, too, would hear God’s voice, even if it’s in a whisper. That we would remember that no, we are not perfect, but we are God’s people. We’re not sent out empty handed. We’re not alone in what we’re called to do. The God of Hosts goes with us!
But by virtue of our baptism, God’s mighty claim on our lives, each of us are compelled to be prophetic. We not think of ourselves as prophets in the typical sense of the term, but we can all speak and act prophetically. And that takes on so many forms for each of us, in any number of situations in which we find ourselves.
