A Collect for Increased Faith and Love

All-knowing Father, who hears the prayer and praises of all people, increase our faith and love so much that the world would know of the work you do in us and the good that we do for your creation and your children, and many would be inspired to turn and praise you, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who loved us to the end and sat down at your right hand in the power of the Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘I have heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love toward all the saints, and for this reason I do not cease to give thanks for you as I remember you in my prayers.’ – Eph. 1:15-16
