A Collect to Waken to the Condition of the World

Almighty God, who calls to us in scripture, creation, Spirit, and friend, rouse us from our stupor and slumber, that we would see clearly and with full awareness our condition and the needs of this world and so act with wisdom to fulfill your work here on earth, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen. ‘Besides this, you know what time it is, how it is now the moment for you to wake from sleep.’ – Rom. 13:11
