A Collect for Receiving and Abiding

Father of lights, from whom flow all good things, give us perseverance to hold closely to you and to rely on your ways and your nature to guide us, that when we turn to you with requests, they would be so aligned with what you delight in that you would be eager to grant them, overflowing with blessings for your children and the world you created, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. ‘If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask for whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.’ – John 15:7
