A Collect to Desire and Search for God

Mysterious God, who sometimes hides yourself from our sight, like the twelve you chose, instill in us a desire to hunt for you when you are gone from our presence, that we would not be satisfied without our source of life and connection to the Creator of all, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who reigns with you and the Holy Spirit in light eternal. Amen. ‘In the morning, while it was still very dark, he got up and went out to a deserted place, and there he prayed. And Simon and his companions hunted for him.’ – Mark 1:35-36
