A Collect to Believe the Goodness that we Have

Merciful Lord, who does not wish that any should fail to accept your grace, keep us from believing the lies that we have nothing or that we are nothing, that what we have would not be spurned or lost, slipping from our fingers in neglect, but grow because of our trust in your goodness and our willingness to plant and cultivate in the soil of your love, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. ‘ For to all those who have, more will be given, and they will have an abundance; but from those who have nothing, even what they have will be taken away.’ – Matthew 25:29
