A Collect to Believe Jesus’ Words to be Life

Great teacher, whose words are life to crushed spirits, may we be awed by your wisdom and gladdened by your teachings, that we would truly see them as the key to living life well and would seek continually to put them into practice, through you who lives and reigns with the Father and Holy Spirit in glory. Amen. ‘Then Jesus, filled with the power of the Spirit, returned to Galilee, and a report about him spread through all the surrounding country. He began to teach in their synagogues and was praised by everyone.’ – Luke 4:14-15
