A Collect of Thanks for Consequences for Sin

Lord God Almighty, who is just in your judgements, we thank you for giving us consequences for our wrongs, that through them we might recognize what we have done and turn from our foolishness and return to you and your ways. Help us to be grateful for your discipline and so return ever to you, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who reigns with you and the Holy Spirit in perpetual glory. Amen. ‘”If you forsake the LORD and serve foreign gods, then he will turn and do you harm, and consume you, after having done you good.”‘ – Joshua 24:20
