A Collect to be Made Subject to God’s Authority

Lord of all creation and king above all kings, soften the hearts of your people, that we would bow before you in humility. Let not our necks be stiff so that we must be broken, but help us to be willing to go where you direct so that your kingdom of love and justice may come, through you who with the Father and Holy Spirit judge the nations of the earth. Amen. ‘ And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.”‘ – Matthew 28:18
