A Collect to Apply Our Wisdom to the Kingdom of God

Lord God of wisdom, who knows all things and offers what is needed to your children, show us how to take the wisdom we have already and turn it towards your kingdom, that your mission of reconciliation and love might progress in this world, and the whole earth would be filled with your ways, through Jesus Christ our savior, who reigns with you and the Holy Spirit forever in glory. Amen. ‘As Jesus passed along the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew casting a net into the sea–for they were fishermen. And Jesus said to them, “Follow me and I will make you fish for people.”‘ – Mark 1:16-17
