A Collect to Learn Jesus’ Ways

Jesus Christ, who is crowned king of a realm not of this world, we do not easily grasp your reign and your kingdom, for we are caught in the wisdom of this world. Plant your kingdom ways in our hearts, that we might understand and live by your holy and healing laws, through you who reigns from heaven with the Father and Holy Spirit forever. Amen. ‘Jesus answered, “My kingdom is not from this world. If my kingdom were from this world, my followers would be fighting to keep me from being handed over to the Jews. But as it is, my kingdom is not from here.”‘ – John 18:36
