A Collect for the Healing of our Souls

God of grace, who knows our hearts, help us to recognize what is going on in our own souls, that we would see the truth of ourselves and recognize where we need your redemption and become willing to open those places up to your healing, through Jesus Christ our Lord, by whose stripes we are healed. Amen. ‘When the chief priests and the Pharisees heard his parables, they realized that he was speaking about them. They wanted to arrest him, but they feared the crowds, because they regarded him as a prophet.’ – Matthew 21:45-46
