A Lenten Collect to Desire and Value What Jesus Desires

Son of Man, who will one day return in the glory of the Father, shape our hearts that we would value what you value and desire that which you desire, so that we would be welcomed into the loving and joyous kingdom of God and rejoice to see you face to face at the fulfillment of the age, through you who reigns in glory forever with the Father and Holy Spirit. Amen. “Those who are ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of them the Son of Man will also be ashamed when he comes in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.” – Mark 8:38
