A Collect of Thanks for God’s Notice and Love of Each of Us

Almighty God, who rules all creation from your throne in heaven, we thank you for reaching down to know us, to ask each of us our name as individual persons precious to you. May your love and desire to know each of us tie us to you as beloved citizens of your kingdom and subjects to the crown of heaven, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen. ‘Jesus then asked him, “What is your name?”‘ – Luke 8:30
