A Collect for Gathering

Spirit of God, breath of the divine, draw us – entire cities – into your presence, that we would be gathered together in expectation of what you are doing and what you will do and be in awe of the things you work in our bodies and our hearts, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who through your power and the authority of the Father worked miracles in Israel and now throughout the world. Amen. ‘That evening, at sundown, they brought to him all who were sick or possessed with demons. And the whole city was gathered around the door.’ – Mark 1:32-33
