A Collect for Humility in Our Works for God

King of Heaven and Earth, whose power is beyond our understanding, keep us humble and dependent upon you in our life and work, that we would recognize that even as we are doing good for you, it is you that truly brings about creation and transformation, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives with you and the Holy Spirit in glory forever. Amen. ‘John answered all of them by saying, “I baptize you with water; but one who is more powerful than I is coming; I am not worthy to untie the thong of his sandals. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.”‘ – Luke 3:16
