A Collect for Wisdom in Conflict
“Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Tell her then to help me.” - Luke 10:40 (ESV)
Patient Lord, who knows the struggles of working with others, for you walked among us, and even you grew frustrated with your followers, give us your compassion and patience, so that we would avoid triangulation and blame and would bring our conflicts to others directly in a spirit of openness and compassion, that our relationships would mirror that of yours with the Father and Holy Spirit, with whom you live in perfect love, one God, now and forever. Amen.
