A Collect to Recognize our Limits

King of kings, commander of the hosts of heaven, give us wisdom to see our limitations, that we would not demand of ourselves more than we are able to bear and so be destroyed in a foolish attempt to grasp more than we are able, through Jesus Christ our Lord who reigns at your right hand in the Holy Spirit in glory forever. Amen. ‘Or what king, going out to wage war against another king, will not sit down first and consider whether he is able with ten thousand to oppose the one who comes against him with twenty thousand?’ – Luke 14:31
