A Collect for Passion to Enter the Kingdom

Firstborn of the Kingdom of Heaven, whose reign is full of justice and mercy, fill our hearts with passion to enter your kingdom, that we would not be left behind and so fail to participate in your culture of love, joy, and peace, through you who lives and reigns forever and ever with the Father and Holy Spirit in glory. Amen. ‘Jesus said to them, “Truly I tell you, the tax collectors and the prostitutes are going into the kingdom of God ahead of you.”‘ – Matthew 21:31
