To Be Who We Are Created To Be
Dr Alex Tang
Father God, I stand before you now high above a sleeping city.
The movie poster for Spider-man 2 shows the back of Spider-man, facing a
bright and sleepy New York. He is in full costume except that he is holding his
For Peter Parker/Spider-man this night he has to make a decision. It is a cross
road, decision making point. One option is for him to hide his superpowers,
pretend to be an ordinary man, marry Mary Jane Watson and have a good life. The
world will not have the benefit of his superpowers. The other option is for him
to continue to be Spider-man. To do that, he has to keep a secret identity and

in that night. How is one to chose? For the greater good of all man, but having
to live a secretive life. Or to bland into the crowd and be invisible. And go
home to wife and family in the evening.
Father God, I stand before you now, hovering above my notebook. I too have a
decision to make. I am also at a cross road, decision making point. The decision
involves a church leadership position. To accept or not to accept. Like
Spiderman, I have climbed to a high place to meditative, think and pray. A place
of solitude to find my heart’s true center.
Father God, you know my heart, my desires and my loyalties. You have give me
much; wealth, talents, good wife, family, children and friends. I want to love
you and be in your presence forever.
I want to serve you, Lord; I want to be your servant. But, Lord, which type of
servant do you want me to be? You have equipped me and given me powers. You know
what type of ministry I am equipped for. In this high place, Lord, please give
me your understanding; enlighten me to what role I shall play next.
Teach me, O Lord, to make a decision.
Lord, have mercy
