A Collect for Righteousness

Judge of all that is, and righteous wielder of wisdom and justice, you do not desire that any should perish. Give us ears to hear your guidance, that we would be counted among the righteous, and give us wisdom and love to help others to be counted among them as well, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, world without end. Amen. “And these will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.” – Matthew 25:46
