A Collect to Recognize the Futility of Sin

Spirit of Truth, who knows the thoughts and desires of all our hearts, show us the futility of life and choices that lead us away from you that we would no longer be drawn to them, alive to those things which lead to death, and be bound in our hearts to your way of love and righteousness toward all, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who reigns over all things through you with the Father in heaven. Amen. ‘When you were slaves of sin, you were free in regard to righteousness. So what advantage did you then get from the things of which you now are ashamed? The end of those things is death.’ – Rom. 6:20-21
