A Collect to See and Value As God Sees and Values

Omniscient Lord, whose eye misses nothing and sees through to our hearts, train us to see as you see, that we would neither value nor be drawn to wealth, power, status, and appearance, but seek our virtue and love in the heart, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who loved us to the end and sat down at your right hand in the Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘But the LORD said to Samuel, “Do not look on his appearance or on the height of his stature, because I have rejected him; for the LORD does not see as mortals see; they look on the outward appearance, but the LORD looks on the heart.”‘ – 1 Sam. 16:7
