A Collect to Recognize the Lord’s Presence

Almighty God, who is present everywhere and from whom nothing is hidden, open our eyes to recognize you around us, that we would see where you are and what you are doing in the world and we might take comfort from your presence and join in your work, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who is alive and reigns forever at your right hand in the power of the Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘When he was at the table with them, he took bread, blessed and broke it, and gave it to them. Then their eyes were opened, and they recognized him.’ – Luke 24:30-31
