A Collect to be Ready for the Spirit’s Call

Holy Spirit, who is ever at work in the world for your good pleasure, help us to be ready for when you appear, that we would be able to respond to your commands and invitations without delay and would be your hands and feet in the world, bringing about the good you have prepared for us in advance, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who abides in you and intercedes for us with the Father always. Amen. “Be dressed for action and have your lamps lit; be like those who are waiting for their master to return from the wedding banquet, so that they may open the door for him as soon as he comes and knocks.” – Luke 12:35-36
