A Collect to Abide with Jesus and He with Us

Lord Jesus Christ, who meets us when we seek you out, come stay with us and abide in our home, and may we find great joy in receiving you, that we would know your presence with us and find our hearts made full by your friendship and love, through you who cares for the lowly and needy even as you reign in glory with the Father and Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘When Jesus came to the place, he looked up and said to him, “Zacchaeus, hurry and come down; for I must stay at your house today.” So he hurried down and was happy to welcome him.’ – Luke 19:5-6
