A Collect to Recognize What is In Our Hearts

Great teacher, whose wisdom may guide all toward real life, teach us to pay attention to what we say and do, that we might recognize what is in our hearts and so know what sin we bear and what healing we need and thereby know what help to ask of you, through you who reached down to your beloved children and then ascended on high to the Father and Holy Spirit in glory. Amen. ‘But what comes out of the mouth proceeds from the heart, and this is what defiles.’ – Matthew 15:18
