A Collect for Joy

God of all creation, who gives to all their needs, cause our hearts to overflow with joy and gratitude when we see what you have done for us and what you are still doing in our lives, and may our joy in turn spill over into blessing others in your name, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who with you and the Holy Spirit are both giver and gift. Amen. ‘ After he said this, he showed them his hands and his side. Then the disciples rejoiced when they saw the Lord.’ – John 20:20
