A Collect to Treasure What God Gives

Eternal God, who was and is and is to come, Teach us to hold on to those moments you have given us, that we might be enlivened and comforted by them and would grow to understand them more and more and we grow in our faith and love for you, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who came in vulnerability, trusting in you through the Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘But Mary treasured all these words and pondered them in her heart.’ – Luke 2:19
