A Collect of Thanks for Being Known by Jesus

Loving Lord, who shepherds us with care and love, we thank you for bringing us into your fold and knowing us as you have made yourself known. May our relationship with you bring security, peace, and belonging as we trust in your love and protection, through you who lives in perfect union with the Father and Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘I am the good shepherd. I know my own and my own know me, just as the Father knows me and I know the Father. And I lay down my life for the sheep.’ – John 10:14-15
