A Collect to Make Ready the Lord’s Return

Lord Jesus Christ, who will come again to redeem the world, show us how we might best prepare the way for your coming, and help us be attentive to your words, that your creation would be made ready for when you appear and we, your servants, would be blessed at seeing your face, through you who reigns in glory with the Father and Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘ As it is written in the prophet Isaiah, “See, I am sending my messenger ahead of you, who will prepare your way.”‘ – Mark 1:2
