A Collect to Separate Ourselves from Conflicting Attachments

Lord of all things, ruler of Earth and Heaven, reveal to us the masters we serve that compete with you for our devotion, that we might free ourselves from entanglements with other kingdoms and be able to serve you well, being wholly devoted to you and your ways, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who opened the path of reconciliation to you and the Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘No slave can serve two masters; for a slave will either hate the one and love the other, or be devoted to the one and despise the other.’ – Luke 16:13
