A Collect for Perspective
'And he said to them, “When you pray, say: Father, hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come."' - Luke 11:2 (ESV)
Father, who understands our weakness and the power of our own desires and needs, grant us a vision to see beyond our desires and a glimpse of your perspective, that we might recognize your ways as truly wise and befitting our nature and able to bring us into something greater than ourselves, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives with you and the Holy Spirit in perfect unity. Amen.
