A Collect to Become True Disciples

Great teacher, who gives wisdom to those who are willing to receive, open our hearts to truly be disciples of your ways, that we would not merely hear your word and fool ourselves into believing that we are like you, but would repent and acknowledge our failings so that we might learn to live as you lived, through you who reigns with the Father and Holy Spirit with perfect understanding. Amen. ‘ Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.’ – Matthew 28:19
