A Collect to Willingly Submit to the Lord

High King of Heaven, ruler of all things and judge of all the living and the dead, move gently but firmly in our hearts to grant us willingness to bow to you and your will, that in that day when all submit to you, it may be in joy and love, with gladness for the goodness and rightness of your rule, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen. ‘For it is written, “As I live, says the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall give praise to God.”‘ – Rom. 14:11
