A Lenten Collect to Detach from This World

Lord Jesus Christ, who has gone to prepare a place for those whom you love, may we not be so attached to the treasures of this world and our lives here on earth that we cannot let go, so that we would be free to receive what you offer in the world to come, through you who opened the way of salvation and now reigns with the Father and Holy Spirit in heaven. Amen.

‘Those who love their life lose it, and those who hate their life in this world will keep it for eternal life.’ – John 12:25
