A Collect of Praise for God’s Inclusion of Us All

God of all nations, who loves each part of his creation, we thank you for your invitations to all of us, whether or not we were worthy of being with you. We praise you for your generosity and goodness and ask that you help us to become like you, able to love all people well, through Jesus Christ your son, who lives with you and the Holy Spirit in glory. Amen. “Then he said to his slaves, ‘The wedding is ready, but those invited were not worthy. Go therefore into the main streets, and invite everyone you find to the wedding banquet.’” – Matthew 22:8-9
