and gives the sign.
And have let him come in into your souls.

who has removed that heart of stone that you had,
and given you a heart of flesh,
full of grace and mercy,
and has renewed your mind.
This I pray over you.

A blessing to all who answer their calling

Nehemiah 11:2
And the people gave a blessing to all the men who were freely offering to take up their places in Jerusalem.

I pray for all who answered their calling,
whatever it may be, whether it be a dangerous one,
in the city that is attacked
to besiege it on all sides by the enemy,
whether it is one in the other cities which are not under attack,
whether it be an important one as a ruler, as a guide, whatever your position may be,
whether it be to clean the halls,
in a faraway town.
A blessing to all who out of their own free will,
take up their places, take up their calling,
answer their calling.
In Jesus mighty name. Amen.
