A Collect to Fulfill Our Obligations

All-knowing Father, who keeps watch over our lives, guide us to recognize what we owe to you and to all creation, that we would rightly fulfill our debts and walk freely, owing only our love to you and all your children, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God.
