A Collect to Prepare the Way

Coming King, who will appear in both humility and glory, show us how we must prepare the way for you, that your coming would not be one that inspires fear or pride in our hearts, but be glad at the appearing of a wise ruler and compassionate friend, through you who reigns in glory with the Father and Holy Ghost. Amen. ‘ A very large crowd spread their cloaks on the road, and others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road.’ – Matthew 21:8
