A Collect for Submission

Son of Man, who obeyed the Father in all things so that you might fulfill all righteousness, teach us to submit ourselves to the Father and to others, that we might learn humility and love like yours and be made clean for this life and the next, through you who now reigns in glory forever with the Father and Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘Then Jesus came from Galilee to John at the Jordan, to be baptized by him. John would have prevented him, saying, “I need to be baptized by you, and do you come to me?” But Jesus answered him, “Let it be so now; for it is proper for us in this way to fulfill all righteousness.” Then he consented.’ – Matthew 3:13-15
