A Lenten Collect to Celebrate Jesus’ Love

Lord Jesus, you who raise the dead bring life and healing to broken people, do not let us lose the opportunities we have to celebrate you and feast with you, that you would be honored continually for all you have done and we might show our gratitude and fan regularly the spark of love in our hearts for you, through you who descended to us and returned to the Father to send the Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘Six days before the Passover Jesus came to Bethany, the home of Lazarus, whom he had raised from the dead. There they gave a dinner for him. Martha served, and Lazarus was one of those at the table with him.’ – John 12:1-2
