A Collect to See the Truth of Ourselves

Almighty God, who sees all things in the world and in our hearts, show us what is in our hearts and give us opportunities to see the truth of ourselves, that we would know what is in us, good and bad, and offer it to you to be transformed and used for your good and the good of the world you love, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, world without end. Amen. ‘He said to him the third time, “Simon son of John, do you love me?” Peter felt hurt because he said to him the third time, “Do you love me?” And he said to him, “Lord, you know everything; you know that I love you.” Jesus said to him, “Feed my sheep.”‘ – John 21:17
