A Collect to Remember to Whom We Belong

Loving God, who created for yourself, let us not lose sight of the truth that we belong to you, that our hearts would be filled with joy in belonging and seek to bring glory to you and your household and not merely ourselves, through Jesus Christ our Lord, to whom you gave us and who promised us the Holy Spirit, the trinity united in purpose and love. Amen. ‘ I am asking on their behalf; I am not asking on behalf of the world, but on behalf of those whom you gave me, because they are yours. All mine are yours, and yours are mine; and I have been glorified in them.’ – John 17:9-10
