A Lenten Collect to Desire That Which is Good for Our Souls

Almighty God, who has given us boundless wonders and treasures in your creation, draw our hearts to things that bring life and goodness and health to our bodies and souls, that we might escape the trap of accumulating things to our own destruction yet still find satisfaction with all that creation offers, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit in perpetual joy and love. Amen. ‘For what will it profit them to gain the whole world and forfeit their life?’ – Mark 8:36
