A Collect to Not Burden Others with Religion

Gentle Father, who knows our frailty for you made us, keep us from making heavy demands and laying burdensome expectations on others in your name, that we would respect the needs of your children and help them to grow in accordance with their nature and your love, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who showed us love to the end and sat down at your right hand in the Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘They tie up heavy burdens, hard to bear, and lay them on the shoulders of others; but they themselves are unwilling to lift a finger to move them.’ – Matthew 23:4
