A Collect to Recognize Our Idols

Almighty God, who alone is worthy of praise, open us up to see the created things that we serve and devote ourselves to, that we would disentangle our heart from things that are unworthy of our devotion and free ourselves to attach to you, through Jesus Christ, who reigns with you and the Holy Spirit over all creation. Amen. ‘He said, “Then put away the foreign gods that are among you, and incline your hearts to the LORD, the God of Israel.”‘ – Joshua 24:23
