A Collect to Draw Close to God

Loving God, who is transcendent beyond all our understanding yet draws near to us also, we thank you for your desire and willingness to be with us and that we should be with you. Continue to refine our hearts that we also would remember and desire always to come close to you, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, world without end. Amen. ‘And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, so that where I am, there you may be also.’ – John 14:3
