A Collect for Right Priorities

Lord Jesus Christ, king of all nations, the priorities of our hearts are awry and are too often set on matters of power and control and the satisfaction of our base desires. Give us new hearts of flesh that would beat with the virtues that you value, that we would love well as you love your creations, through you who reigns with the Father and Holy Spirit over all the earth. Amen. ‘People were bringing little children to him in order that he might touch them; and the disciples spoke sternly to them. But when Jesus saw this, he was indignant.’ – Mark 10:13-14
