A Collect to Bless Those in Need

God of justice, who will bring about all things at the fulfillment of the ages, keep us from growing overly comfortable with ease and the security of this life, that we would use what we have to provide for those who do not and thereby bless as we have been blessed by you, through Jesus Christ our example and lord, who reigns with you and the Holy Spirit on high. Amen. ‘”Blessed are you who weep now, for you will laugh. “Woe to you who are laughing now, for you will mourn and weep.”‘ – Luke 6:21, 25
