A Collect to Be Convicted When We See Others’ Goodness

Gracious Father, whose desire is for all to come into your kingdom, may our hearts be convicted of our failings when we see others walking in your kingdom ways, that we would turn to you for salvation and so be transformed more and more into your likeness, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who with you and the Holy Spirit shines brighter than the sun as you reign from heaven forever. Amen. ‘For John came to you in the way of righteousness and you did not believe him, but the tax collectors and the prostitutes believed him; and even after you saw it, you did not change your minds and believe him.’ – Matthew 21:32
