A Collect for the Lord’s Return

Lord and friend, who is preparing for us a place, we look forward to the day of your return, when we will see your face and live with you, finding joy and rest in your Father’s house. Grant us patience, but do not tarry, through you who dwells with the Father and Holy Spirit in perfect harmony. Amen. ‘ In my Father’s house there are many dwelling places. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, so that where I am, there you may be also.’ – John 14:2-3
