A Collect to Seek What is First

Pure Lord Jesus, whose heart desires only that which the Father desires, instill in us a will to seek always what is first and of greatest importance, that our hearts would be guided by that which matters most and most pleases you, through you who reigns with the Father and Holy Spirit in eternal light. Amen. ‘One of the scribes came near and heard them disputing with one another, and seeing that he answered them well, he asked him, “Which commandment is the first of all?”‘ – Mark 12:28
