My Evening Vesper

Our callings remain a hope until we allow the eyes of our hearts to be enlightened and choose to accept them.

Father, in the parable of the sower, You teach us that the seed of Your Word that falls along the path represents the ones who hear, and the devil comes and takes away the word from their hearts, so that they may not believe (Luke 8:12). Lord, please help me to actively receive Your Word into my heart upon hearing it so that the devil cannot come and take it from me before it has time to take root.

I also pray that I will not be like those who receive the Word with joy when they hear it, but they have no root. They believe for a while, but in the time of testing they fall away (Luke 8:13). Help me to receive Your Word and hang on to it tightly.
