A Collect to Not Turn Reject Jesus and His Call to Us

Lord of Heaven and Earth, whose ways are not our ways, keep us from turning you away, and let not our hearts be pointed away from your goal, that in humility we would recognize and confess our lack of understanding and where our hearts are devoted to ways that are not yours, through you who is the gate into the safety that is the Father in the Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘On their way they entered a village of the Samaritans to make ready for him; but they did not receive him, because his face was set toward Jerusalem.’ – Luke 9:52-53
