A Collect for Rescue When Straying

Gentle Shepherd, who bears the rod and staff for our good, come seek us when we are lost and have gone away from your fold, that we might be rescued from our own foolishness and returned to your arms, held safely and loved, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who is the gate to you and your kingdom in the power of the Holy Spirit. Amen. “Which one of you, having a hundred sheep and losing one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness and go after the one that is lost until he finds it?” – Luke 15:4
