A Collect to Submit to the Lord’s Work

Almighty God, Lord of all creation, you have prepared for us work to do in your world. Give us humble hearts that will submit to your tasks, that we would find joy in our work for you, knowing that you are present with us and that we labor for one who loves us well, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who submitted to your work and ascended in joy to you and the Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘ For the kingdom of heaven is like a landowner who went out early in the morning to hire laborers for his vineyard.’ – Matthew 20:1 What work has God given you in this season? How are you thinking and feeling about it? Frustrated? Glad? Confused? What is it like to bring those thoughts and feelings to God?
