A Collect to Act With God

Steadfast Jesus, who withstood the soothing whispers of the accuser, keep us connected to the Father and in remembrance that the Spirit is present, that we would not take on life alone and in our own strength, but work with you and the desires you have for us, even when they seem difficult to bear, who with the Father and Spirit enjoy perfect union and invite us to join. Amen. ‘The tempter came and said to him, “If you are the Son of God, command these stones to become loaves of bread.”‘ – Matthew 4:3
