A Collect to Hear the Messengers of God

Holy Lord, light of all creation, open our ears to hear the words of those who testify to your presence and your work, that we would hear the ones you have sent to speak to us and would understand your life-giving message, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who shines with you and the Holy Spirit in perfect glory. Amen. ‘ There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. He came as a witness to testify to the light, so that all might believe through him.’ – John 1:6-7
