A Collect for Patience in Our Limited Understanding

Lord Jesus, humble king, be patient with us as we do not grasp your ways. Bear with our smallness that when we err, you would have mercy and lead us gently into understanding so that we would better walk according to your will for us and the world, through you who was and is and is to come. Amen. ‘When Jesus realized that they were about to come and take him by force to make him king, he withdrew again to the mountain by himself.’ – John 6:15
