A Collect for Innocence to Receive God’s Simple Truth

Gracious Father, whose wisdom knows no boundaries, teach us to be innocent and accepting like children, that we would be open to receiving the simple and profound truths that you offer us, which bring us life and nourishment to our souls, through Jesus Christ our Lord who is alive and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit in joy and unity forever and ever. Amen. ‘At that time Jesus said, “I thank you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and the intelligent and have revealed them to infants; yes, Father, for such was your gracious will.”‘ – Matthew 11:25-26
