A Lenten Collect to Approach God with Reverence

Our Father, who reigns over all things from your heavenly throne, teach us to respect your presence and your ways, that we would enter your presence with reverence and honor, our hearts focused on you and the devotion that you deserve, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, God most high above all things and ruling in might and glory forever. Amen. ‘He told those who were selling the doves, “Take these things out of here! Stop making my Father’s house a marketplace!”‘ – John 2:16
