A Collect to Love God Wholly

O Lord our God, whom in your overflowing love and joy created all things, help us to love you wholly and with all our being, that we might join with you in the eternal exchange of love that you have lived since before all time, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who loves the Father who loves the Spirit who loves the Son in perpetual joy and union. Amen. ‘He said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the greatest and first commandment.”‘ – Matthew 22: 37-38
