A Collect to be Worthy of God’s Gifts

Great King of all kings, whose reign encompasses all that was and is and shall be, help us to be worthy of your invitations and gifts, that we would honor you with our presence and join in your celebration of life and love in this world and the next, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who is worthy to receive all praise and now reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, world without end. Amen. “Then he said to his slaves, ‘The wedding is ready, but those invited were not worthy.’” – Matthew 22:8
