A Collect to Release Difficult People

Father of many nations, by whom all people are made into one family, open us to know where our attachments to others are hindrances to our lives and your ways, that we would be able to let go of those people who hinder us and be capable of being received into your family, knowing that it may prove difficult, but trusting in your love, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen. ‘Jesus said, “Truly I tell you, there is no one who has left house or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or fields, for my sake and for the sake of the good news, who will not receive a hundredfold now in this age–houses, brothers and sisters, mothers and children, and fields with persecutions–and in the age to come eternal life.”‘ – Mark 10:29-30
