A Collect for Wisdom to Comprehend the Kingdom

Jesus Christ, anointed of the Holy Spirit, give us understanding, for we struggle to comprehend the nature of your kingdom. Open our minds to receive your wisdom and your ways, that we would honor and value those people and things that you honor and value, and we would rightly perceive the kingdom of God both here and in eternity, through you who rules over creation at the right hand of the Father. Amen. ‘But when Jesus saw this, he… said to them, “Let the little children come to me; do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of God belongs.”‘ – Mark 10:14
