A Lenten Collect to Come To Our Senses

Patient Father, who tarries with us longer than we deserve out of your great love, help us to come to ourselves when we have turned away from you, that we would realize the depths of our sin and the futility of our ways and would recognize our great need of you, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who with you and the Holy Spirit was and is and is to come. Amen. ‘But when he came to himself…’ – Luke 15:17
