A Collect to See Our Faith Clearly

O Lord our God, who knows our hearts more perfectly than we do, reveal to us what we truly believe about you, that we would not hide behind mere affirmations, but confess the real nature and character of our faith and when we find deficiencies, we willing to receive the truth and be changed by your hand, through Jesus Christ, your son, who lives with you and the Holy Spirit in perfect knowledge. Amen. ‘ He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?”‘ – Matthew 16:15 How closely matched are what’s in your mind about God and what’s in your heart about God? Are you willing to explore where there might be differences? What might happen if you asked God to show you where your head and heart don’t agree?
