A Collect to Separate Out That Which is Useless

Lord of the harvest, who stands ready to separate what is good from what is useless, teach us to recognize the chaff in our own hearts and lives, that we might burn away that which does not serve us or you and become delightful to your eyes and nourishing to the souls of those you place in our community, through you who intercedes before the Almighty for us through the Holy Spirit. Amen. “His winnowing fork is in his hand, to clear his threshing floor and to gather the wheat into his granary; but the chaff he will burn with unquenchable fire.” – Luke 3:17
