A Collect to Devote Ourselves Continually in Prayer

Caring God, who hears all that we ask of you, as we wait for your return and for your word and invitations to us in the world, do not let us fail to continually present ourselves before you with petitions and praise that our bond with you would be continually strengthened and we would be ready to do your will when the time is ready, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who reigns with you and the Holy Spirit forever in glory. Amen. ‘All these were constantly devoting themselves to prayer, together with certain women, including Mary the mother of Jesus, as well as his brothers.’ – Acts 1:14
