A Collect for Gratitude and Mission
"The man from whom the demons had gone begged that he might be with him, but Jesus sent him away, saying, 'Return to your home, and declare how much God has done for you.' And he went away, proclaiming throughout the whole city how much Jesus had done for him." - Luke 8:38-39 (ESV)
Generous Lord, who gives great gifts to your children, give us grateful hearts that overflow with thankfulness and joy, that we, like the man possessed be a legion, might spread our story and our joy to everyone near us, through you who lives in eternal happiness with the Father and Holy Spirit. Amen.
