A Collect to See Jesus Truly

Lord Jesus of Nazareth, whom even the demons fear, open our eyes to see who you are and to be awed by your holiness even as we are comforted by your love. May our hearts be struck whenever we enter your presence, that we would both worship and trust you, king and friend, through you who reigns with the Father and Holy Spirit in majesty and glory. Amen. ‘Just then there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit, and he cried out, “What have you to do with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are, the Holy One of God.”‘ – Mark 1:23-24
