A Collect to Find Our Work

Lord Jesus, who knows our weakness and is gentle with us, grant us willingness to take on the work that you have for us, that we would not escape your desire and make our lives more difficult than they ought to be, but would find that you have prepared for us work that rests easy on our shoulders, through you who reigns with the Father in the power of the Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘ Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”‘ – Matthew 11:29-30
