A Collect for the 4th Week after Pentecost

Father, who knows us better than we know ourselves, give us courage to offer to you that which is most precious to us and the things that we cling to and feel we cannot live without, trusting that while you may burn the profane, you will not take away the things that we need most, but will give them back to us with a blessing, in the name of your Son, who with you and the Holy Spirit abound in wisdom, forever and ever. Amen. The Sacrifice of Isaac by Caravaggio #Collect #Prayer #sacrifice #abraham #isaac
