A Collect to Serve the King Well

King of All Kings, who is lavish with your generosity, keep us from taking advantage of your generosity and neglecting the expectations of those who are subjects in your kingdom, that we would serve you well even as we enjoy the gifts of a king who cares abundantly for his subjects, through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord and forerunner in the Spirit. Amen. “But when the king came in to see the guests, he noticed a man there who was not wearing a wedding robe, and he said to him, ‘Friend, how did you get in here without a wedding robe?’ And he was speechless.” – Matthew 22:11-12
