“‘Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.’ ‘Ah, Sovereign Lord,’ I said, ‘I do not know how to speak; I am only a child.’ But the Lord said to me, ‘Do not say, “I am only a child.” You must go to everyone I send you to. Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you and will rescue you,’ declares the Lord.”  Jeremiah 1:5-8 (NIV)
