A Collect to Love the Lord in Increasing Measure

Gentle Lord, who is patient and generous with us who do not deserve your care, help us to love you more and more, that we could not help but keep your commandments, desiring to make you happy and feel the warmth of your delight, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who sings over all creation in perfect harmony with the Father and Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘If you love me, you will keep my commandments.’ – John 14:15
