A Collect for Humility in the Face of God’s Power

Almighty One, who holds all of creation in your hands, give us humble hearts when we take in your works, that we would recognize our smallness and yet be grateful for your gentleness with and care for us, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who reigns on high with you and the Holy Spirit, now and forever. Amen. ‘But when Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus’ knees, saying, “Go away from me, Lord, for I am a sinful man!”‘ – Luke 5:8
