A Collect to be Seen

Lord Jesus, whose compassion for your people runs deep, show us that our desires and needs are seen, that we would escape feeling alone and uncared for and would know that you are present to our deepest desires and longings, through you who rose from the grave by the love of the Father and Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘So he ran ahead and climbed a sycamore tree to see him, because he was going to pass that way. When Jesus came to the place, he looked up and said to him, “Zacchaeus, hurry and come down; for I must stay at your house today.”‘ – Luke 19:4-5
