A Lenten Collect to Serve God Before Ourselves

O Lord our God, whose glory is visible in every corner of your creation, keep us from using your name or your church for our own purposes, that we would honor you always and serve you and your people and so be rewarded by the real life that you offer, through Jesus Christ our redeemer, who set an example that we should follow and now lives with you and the Holy Spirit in perpetual joy and glory. Amen. ‘You shall not make wrongful use of the name of the LORD your God, for the LORD will not acquit anyone who misuses his name.’ – Ex. 20:7
