A Collect for Humility and Honor

Almighty God, lord and master of all that was and is and shall be, let our hearts be humble, recognizing our true place and status, that we would be honored when you come to us, grateful for your love and joyous at the invitation you offer to be with you, through Jesus Christ our Lord, the heir and lord of all creation with you and the Holy Spirit. Amen. “And why has this happened to me, that the mother of my Lord comes to me?” – Luke 1:43
