A Collect for Open Hearts

Father in Heaven, who reveals the truth to your beloved children, open our hearts, that we might receive your word and know your name and what you speak to the world and would turn in faith to keep your commandments and fulfill your desire throughout Creation, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen. “I have made your name known to those whom you gave me from the world. They were yours, and you gave them to me, and they have kept your word. Now they know that everything you have given me is from you.” – John 17:6-7
