A Collect for Restoration in Foolishness

Suffering servant, who allowed himself to be bound, not because you could not resist, but for the sake of those you love, give us true remorse for those times when we have chosen against you and against ourselves, not that we would curse ourselves for our mistakes, but that we would turn toward you for forgiveness and be transformed by your love, through you who with the Father and Holy Ghost are sovereign over all things. Amen. ‘ But you have a custom that I release someone for you at the Passover. Do you want me to release for you the King of the Jews?” They shouted in reply, “Not this man, but Barabbas!” Now Barabbas was a bandit.’ – John 18:39-40
