A Collect for Our Hearts to be Inclined toward the Father

Lord God of Israel, who chose one people as your own but desires that all should come to you, incline our hearts toward you, that we would have the will to put aside those things that call to us but cannot save and find our salvation in your great love, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who loved us to the end and was taken up with you and the Holy Spirit to reign together in glory, world without end. Amen. ‘He said, “Then put away the foreign gods that are among you, and incline your hearts to the LORD, the God of Israel.”‘ – Joshua 24:23
