A Collect to Accept the Lord’s Invitations

Lord of all nations and king of all creation, forgive us when we ignore or reject the invitations you send us. Be gracious to us, and incline our hearts toward you, that we would value you above all and leap at the offer to be with you, through Jesus Christ our Savior who reigns with you and the Holy Spirit in glory. Amen. “The kingdom of heaven may be compared to a king who gave a wedding banquet for his son. He sent his slaves to call those who had been invited to the wedding banquet, but they would not come.” – Matthew 22:2-3
