A Collect of Thanks for God’s Adoption of the Gentiles

Gracious Father, who loves all those he has created, we thank you for grafting us into your family and adopting us as your daughters and sons. Teach us to love as you have loved us, that the whole earth would be filled with charity, peace, and harmony, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who reigns with you and the Holy Spirit in perfect joy forever. Amen. ‘That is, the Gentiles have become fellow heirs, members of the same body, and sharers in the promise in Christ Jesus through the gospel.’ – Eph. 3:6
