A Collect to Turn to God Rightly

Gracious God, who knows our deep thoughts and intentions, when we turn to you, may it be with sincere hearts, that we would truly seek to allow you to change us and to do good in our hearts and in the world, through Jesus Christ our Lord who is alive and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit in glory forever. Amen. ‘But when he saw many Pharisees and Sadducees coming for baptism, he said to them, “You brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the wrath to come? Bear fruit worthy of repentance.”‘ – Matthew 3:7-8
