A Collect to Encourage All Those whom We Touch

Spirit of Christ, who knows the needs and desires of all people, keep close to our lips the message that your goodness and love is near, that all those we come into contact with might be lifted up by the reassurance that you care for them and that they matter to their Father in heaven, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with the Father in unity with you, one God, world without end. Amen. “As you go, proclaim the good news, ‘The kingdom of heaven has come near.’” – Matthew 10:7
