A Collect to See Our Faults

Gracious King, who continually reaches out to a stubborn people, show us where our hearts have grown cold and our senses dull, that we would not be trapped by our brokenness and sin, but recognize our need and turn to you to be healed, through Jesus Christ who heals the great infirmities of soul by you and the power of the Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘ For this people’s heart has grown dull, and their ears are hard of hearing, and they have shut their eyes; so that they might not look with their eyes, and listen with their ears, and understand with their heart and turn— and I would heal them.’ – Matthew 13:15 / Isaiah 6:10
