A Collect for Eschewing the Deceit of Wealth

Lord of all nations, who sets aright a broken and inverted world, let not our hearts be fooled into trusting in money and resources for our security, but grant that our consolation would come from you and the solidarity that comes with your reign, through you who died that we might live and sat down at the right hand of the Father in the Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘Then he looked up at his disciples and said: “Blessed are you who are poor, for yours is the kingdom of God. “But woe to you who are rich, for you have received your consolation.”‘ – Luke 6:20,24
