A Collect for Joy in Seeing the Lost Come Home
Shepherd of our souls, who seeks out those who are lost and straying, you rejoice greatly when you find and bring home those who are lost. May we likewise take great joy in seeing those who are lost be taken back into the fold, through Jesus Christ who came to us in order to show us your great love and mercy and returned to share in the your joy in the Holy Spirit. Amen.
"And when he comes home, he calls together his friends and neighbors, saying to them, 'Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep that was lost.'" - Luke 15:6
