A Collect to Obey Even the Lord’s Strange Commands

Lord God, who is not of this world for you transcend it completely, though are yet at work within it, give us courage to do all that you ask of us, even when it is strange to our ears, that we would not miss the opportunities that you present to see your power at work and be blessed by your healing and wonders, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who reigns with you and the Holy Spirit in heaven. Amen. ‘When he had said this, he spat on the ground and made mud with the saliva and spread the mud on the man’s eyes, saying to him, “Go, wash in the pool of Siloam” (which means Sent). Then he went and washed and came back able to see.’ – John 9:6-7
