A Collect to Trust that the Kingdom is At Hand

Loving God, who has said all that is necessary for your people to understand and yet speaks more, help us to believe that your kingdom truly is at hand, that we might step into your care and learn from your ways to be truly of your people, through Jesus Christ, the gate into your kingdom, who reigns with you and the Holy Spirit in perpetual glory, now and forever. Amen. ‘Now after John was arrested, Jesus came to Galilee, proclaiming the good news of God, and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God has come near; repent, and believe in the good news.”‘ – Mark 1:14-15
