A Collect for Reminders to Remain Attached to God

Almighty Father, source of our being, draw us again and again with whispers and nudges to remain connected to you and to remember our life in you, that we would not wither and dry out, burned out with our attempts to live life apart from you, but find ourselves sustained by the one who brought us life from the beginning, through Jesus Christ your Son. Amen. ‘I am the vine, you are the branches. Those who abide in me and I in them bear much fruit, because apart from me you can do nothing. Whoever does not abide in me is thrown away like a branch and withers; such branches are gathered, thrown into the fire, and burned.’ – John 15:5-6
