A Collect to Be Ready to Obey the Spirit’s Call

Ever-present Spirit, who guides us should we be attentive, help us to be ready and able so that whenever you should call on us, we would be capable of following through with your will and thus serve the Lord well, fulfilling the mission of reconciliation and justice on the earth, through Jesus Christ our redeemer, who lives forever with you and the Father in perpetual glory. Amen. ‘Therefore, keep awake–for you do not know when the master of the house will come, in the evening, or at midnight, or at cockcrow, or at dawn.’ – Mark 13:35
