A Collect for Gratitude Leading to Worship

Ruler of all the earth, who was and is and is to come, fill our hearts with gratitude for your willing sacrifice on our behalf, that we would return to you the love that you gave to us and bow before your throne in true worship throughout the ages, through you who reigns from heaven with the Father and Holy Spirit in glory. Amen. ‘Grace to you and peace from him who is and who was and who is to come, and from the seven spirits who are before his throne, and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth. To him who loves us and freed us from our sins by his blood…’ – Rev 1:4-5
