A Collect for Detachment

Creator of all things, who sows seeds of matter and spirit, keep us from being overly attached to the things of this age, that we would be free to devote ourselves to eternal treasures and virtues, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who with you and the Holy Spirit know what truly satisfies the soul. Amen. ‘ As for what was sown among thorns, this is the one who hears the word, but the cares of the world and the lure of wealth choke the word, and it yields nothing.’ – Matthew 13:22
