A Collect to Love Others Well

Gracious God, whose nature and character is love, reveal to us where we fail to love one another, that we could turn from all things that keep us from desiring the good of those around us and sow harmony and cooperation throughout your creation, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who loved us to the end and was raised to new life by you through the power of the Spirit. Amen. “This is the greatest and first commandment. And a second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’” – Matthew 22:38-39
