Collect

Long story short, I’ve taken up writing collects. It is part of a growing desire in me to pray more.

Almighty Abba, you have always been immovable, unchangeable, and good.

You have always known what is best for us, your children.

And you have always simply been.

We confess that we’ve moved you around and changed you into what suits us.

We’ve taken Jesus Christ, your Son, and made Him Buddy Christ, the action figure so that we can make and move Him however we choose. And just like a toy we put you away when we want and take you back out when we are in trouble. Offend us with your grace when we’ve made you in our image.

Cleanse us we pray so that we might truly see you and know you, and then live for you, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen
