A Collect for Love that Grounds Service

Risen Lord, who yet bears your wounds though now in glory, fill our hearts with love for you, that that love would form a foundation off of which we might serve your children and care for those who are hungry and in need, through you who first loved us and created us to share in the life you have with the Father and Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘When they had finished breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon son of John, do you love me more than these?” He said to him, “Yes, Lord; you know that I love you.” Jesus said to him, “Feed my lambs.”‘ – John 21:15
