A Collect to be Known for our Love

High King of Heaven, whose name will be exalted by all creation, help us to live lives that are marked by your nature and character, that we would be known first for our love for you and one another, our goodness that springs from trust in you, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who reigns with you and the Holy Spirit in perfect love, now and forever. Amen. ‘In our prayers for you we always thank God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, for we have heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and of the love that you have for all the saints.’ – Col. 1:3-4
