A Collect for the 11th Week after Pentecost

Pure and Holy Lord, who turns even evil so that it might be made a blessing to your people, do not let us waste our time with useless exercises that never reach our hearts, but reveal to us the sin we already carry in those hearts, and give us faith so that we might be made clean on the inside, through you who died and was raised and lives forever in glory with the Father and Holy Spirit. Amen. Joseph Receiving His Father and Brothers in Egypt by Jan de Bray #Collect #Joseph
