A Collect to Bring Our Requests to God

Father in Heaven, who loves to hear the prayers of your people, incline our hearts to turn to you in our needs, that we would ask for your help, trusting that you work things together for good and delight in caring for your people, through Jesus Christ our Lord, in whose name we approach you and the Holy Spirit, united in one Trinity. Amen. ‘Now Simon’s mother-in-law was in bed with a fever, and they told him about her at once.’ – Mark 1:30
