A Collect to Hear Again the Good News

Lord Jesus, prophet, priest, and king, proclaim to us once again the good news that the kingdom of heaven has come close that we might be encouraged to know that you are near to us, that we are not forsaken or abandoned, and that your goodness and love are available to us in every hour, through you who lives forever in glory with the Father and Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘From that time Jesus began to proclaim, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven has come near.”‘ – Matthew 4:17
