A Collect to Remember and Preach the Nearness of the Kingdom

King of glory, whose reign is one of power and love and authority, remind us that your kingdom is near to us, and inspire us also to remind others of the same, that many would be strengthened by the knowledge that you are near and available and we would experience your power and love among us, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who is alive and rules with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, world without end. Amen. “Whenever you enter a town and its people welcome you, eat what is set before you; cure the sick who are there, and say to them, ‘The kingdom of God has come near to you.’” – Luke 10: 8-9
