A Collect to Eschew Fighting Against God

Almighty One, who set the world in its place and defined the laws of the universe, help us to align ourselves with your will, lest we be caught fighting for the impossible and watch our plans slip through our fingers, having wasted the time you have given, through Jesus Christ, who through you and the power of the Holy Spirit worked miracles in our midst and ascended to your right hand in glory. Amen. ‘They got up, drove him out of the town, and led him to the brow of the hill on which their town was built, so that they might hurl him off the cliff. But he passed through the midst of them and went on his way.’ – Luke 4:29-30
