A Collect for Being Found

Good shepherd, who seeks out those who are outside of the fold, we are too often lost and straying, uncertain of ourselves and our world. Seek us out and bring us home, that we would find in your arms the place we belong and be gathered together with those who call you their Lord and friend, through you who lives and reigns in perfect love with the Father and Holy Spirit forever. Amen. ‘When they were satisfied, he told his disciples, “Gather up the fragments left over, so that nothing may be lost.”‘ – John 6:12
