A Collect to Instinctively Live According to God’s Law

Lord God, whose promises are like iron, open our hearts that you might write your law within them, that your ways would be natural to us, instinctive and our delight, and we would live perpetually according to your laws of love, justice, and mercy all of our days, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who is the fulfillment of the law, the glory of you and the Holy Spirit made in our form and flesh. Amen. ‘But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the LORD: I will put my law within them, and I will write it on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. No longer shall they teach one another, or say to each other, “Know the LORD,” for they shall all know me, from the least of them to the greatest, says the LORD; for I will forgive their iniquity, and remember their sin no more.’ – Jeremiah 31:33-34
