A Collect for Vulnerability

‘And he said to him, “You have answered correctly; do this, and you will live.” But he, desiring to justify himself, said to Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?”’ – Luke 10:28-29 Jesus, full of mercy, you who knows our hearts and yet still is filled with love and compassion, give us courage to stand before you as we are, with all our needs and vulnerabilities, so that we might not need to protect and justify ourselves and would trust that you will lead us to wholeness and freedom from ourselves, through you, who lives in perfect union with the Father and Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen. #Mercy #Vulnerability #Love
