A Collect for Surrender

Lord Jesus, who humbled himself and took the form of a servant, give us humility to surrender ourselves to the will of the Lord, that we would enter into your plan and works and be part of the redemption of the people you love, servants but honored like Mary, your mother, through you who now reigns with the Father and Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘ Then Mary said, “Here am I, the servant of the Lord; let it be with me according to your word.” Then the angel departed from her.’ – Luke 1:38
