A Collect for Guidance in Helping Fulfil the Father’s Mission

Gracious Father, who longs that none should perish but all would receive your gift of love, show us how to work with you to bring in those you are not yet among your flock, that we would be a help to you in your work, uniting all people under your care and welcoming of your love and guidance, through Jesus Christ, the good shepherd, who reigns with you and the Holy Spirit in glory. Amen. ‘I have other sheep that do not belong to this fold. I must bring them also, and they will listen to my voice. So there will be one flock, one shepherd.’ – John 10:16
