A Collect to Be Attentive to Christ’s Invitations

Lord Jesus Christ, who speaks to us through your sacrifice of your great love, keep us ever mindful of your invitations, and keep our ears attentive to your call, that we would be ready to respond to you and be your servants in the world, doing the good you desire and have prepared for us to do, through you who speaks from heaven where you dwell in light perpetual with the Father and Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘You have come to Jesus, the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks a better word than the blood of Abel. See that you do not refuse the one who is speaking; for if they did not escape when they refused the one who warned them on earth, how much less will we escape if we reject the one who warns from heaven!’ – Heb. 12:24-25
