A Collect to Escape the Enchanting Selfish

Spirit of wisdom, who knows the hearts of all people, teach us to recognize those whose hearts are duplicitous and who look first to themselves, disregarding others for their own sake. Keep us far from them, that we would not be enchanted by their appearance but recognize that they are far from your kingdom, through Jesus Christ, who demonstrated your great love and was lifted up in the power of the Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘They devour widows’ houses and for the sake of appearance say long prayers.’ – Mark 12:40
