A Collect to Prepare for God’s Return

Lord Jesus Christ, who will return to us to set all things right, give us wisdom to know how to prepare for your coming and the will to do what is required, that even if we do not know the time of your appearing, the world would be ready to receive you, through you who reigns king over all creation with the Father and Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘This is the one of whom the prophet Isaiah spoke when he said, “The voice of one crying out in the wilderness: ‘Prepare the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.’”‘ – Matthew 3:3
