A Collect to Eschew Overweening Certitude

Heavenly Father, whose wisdom is bound up with compassion, keep us from haughty certainty in our own knowledge, and keep us from believing ourselves to be wiser than you. Give us humble respect for your understanding and a willing receptivity for your ways, for we know they are greater than our own, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. ‘ No one was able to give him an answer, nor from that day did anyone dare to ask him any more questions.’ – Matthew 22:46
