A Lenten Collect to Sacrifice for God’s Honor

Anointed One, who was honored by many who love you, may we be willing to sacrifice much and spend much as we praise and honor you, that our love would be so great as to overflow in generosity and trust, and you would be lifted up in the eyes of all who see it, through you who ascended to the Father and Holy Spirit to reign together in majesty forever. Amen. ‘Mary took a pound of costly perfume made of pure nard, anointed Jesus’ feet, and wiped them with her hair. The house was filled with the fragrance of the perfume.’ – John 12:3
