A Collect to Be Taught

Patient teacher, who has given us difficult things to grasp but is patient with our limitations, teach us again the things that we need to understand but have failed to grasp, that we would take in the truths that you offer so that they go deep into our hearts to produce the change and the fruit that you long for us to produce, through you who ascended to the Father and Holy Spirit in glory. Amen. ‘ And his disciples approached him, saying, “Explain to us the parable of the weeds of the field.”‘ – Matthew 13:36
