A Collect for God’s Blessing

Great king of glory, Father of all creation, bless us, O Lord, that we would receive from you goodness and be affirmed and shown love, for apart from your blessing, we waste away, and by it we are strengthened and made alive, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen. “Then the king will say to those at his right hand, ‘Come, you that are blessed by my Father…’” – Matthew 25:34
