A Collect to Respect All Who Come to the Father

Lord God, who brings food to the hungry and turns the rich away empty, keep us from ignoring and expecting nothing from the least of this world, knowing that you bless all with no partiality. Give us hearts that, like you, embrace in all who come to you and reject none who turn to you with humble and desiring hearts, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who humbled himself and was exalted to your right hand in the Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘Even upon my slaves, both men and women, in those days I will pour out my Spirit; and they shall prophesy.’ – Acts 2:18
