JULY 22

As we pray for the newly consecrated bishops of the United Methodist Church let us ask God to give each of them a teachable spirit.

Consecration of Bishop Jimmy Nunn

Consecration of Bishop Jimmy Nunn

Prayer:
O GOD, give me a teachable spirit, reminding me that to be a true disciple is to adopt literally the spirit of a learner. Show me how much I have yet to learn, not to discourage but to inspire me to be a person who passionately pursues whatever you want me to know. Save me from ever convincing myself that I have “arrived” and that I can now rest and take my ease — which is to settle for the false security of pseudo-competence.
