A Collect to Know Where to Set Boundaries

Merciful King, who knows our needs for boundaries and limitations, keep us from codependence and exerting ourselves beyond what is useful for others and ourselves, that we would have wisdom in putting up boundaries and be able to devote ourselves to what is best for us and your kingdom, through Jesus Christ who reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God. Amen. ‘[A] nd if the offender refuses to listen even to the church, let such a one be to you as a Gentile and a tax collector.’ – Matthew 18:17
