A Collect for Willing Hearts to Do Good

Lord of the harvest, who has provided in advance good works for us to do, grant us willing and compassionate hearts that we would go into the world to show your love to all those who are willing to receive it, through Jesus Christ, our great teacher, who with you and the Holy Spirit reigns in glory on high, world without end. Amen. ‘Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore ask the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.”‘ – Matthew 9:37-38
