A Collect to Desire Christ Ever More

Lord Jesus Christ, who speaks the word of the Father, forgive us for our failures to keep your words, but teach us to use those failings as a means of seeing our disconnection from you, that we might recognize our lack of love and seek to come closer, delighting in you and your desire for us, through you who stooped down to reach out to us and show us the way to the Father and Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘Whoever does not love me does not keep my words; and the word that you hear is not mine, but is from the Father who sent me.’ – John 14:24
