Need Verse for Mission Conference

I need some help from those of you who can think better and faster than I can about such things.  Our mission conference theme is, "Enlarge Our Vision, Lord."  

I need a verse that will speak to the prayer, "Lord, help us to see our part in your work of redeeming the lost."

Please do not recommend Proverbs 29:18 for obvious reasons.

Thank you

Habakkuk 2:14

For the earth will be filled
    with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord
    as the waters cover the sea.

Doesn't speak to "help us see our part"; but it's a very large vision...

If you are, then M. Osborne deserves part of your compensation.

Also, shouldn't you do exegesis and bible study before your prayer formulation?

I'll say Acts 1:8, but that verse could be used with just about any missions theme. But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.

John 4:35 "lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are already white for harvest!"

Some good ideas, guys.  Thank you.  My mission committee wants to stress at this conference that we are often too near-sighted in our own lives and need to recognize what God has called us to do.  AS for Alex, sorry buddy.  I am not in the mood to play.
