A Collect to See the Value of God’s Kingdom

Glorious Lord, whose worth exceeds all that we might discover in creation, open our eyes to see the value of the ways of your kingdom and the life that you offer in it, that we would be willing to cast off whatever is necessary to embrace your culture of love and be received into your care, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who opened the way to you and the Holy Spirit and ascended to return to your presence in joy forever. Amen. “The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which someone found and hid; then in his joy he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field.” – Matthew 13:44
