A Collect to Welcome All Who Desire to Enter the Kingdom

Lord Jesus, who is willing to be with us and share our lives, do not let us look down on any who desire to come and walk with us in your kingdom, that all would be welcome who desire to live in your ways and learn to walk as you do, through you who loved us to the end and was raised to new life by the Father through the Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘And as he sat at dinner in the house, many tax collectors and sinners came and were sitting with him and his disciples.’ – Matthew 9:10
