A Collect to Inspire Good in the World
Father of all creation, who cares for all your children for we are your own, may the good that we do be striking in the eyes of the world, that they would see there is something different and good in our hearts and actions and be drawn to you, desirous of entering your kingdom of love and joining in your blessed works, through Jesus Christ our Lord, whose self-sacrifice inspires glory to you and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
'In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven.' - Matthew 5:16
Is what I am doing in the world visible to others? Does it seem different to others than how the world generally functions - particularly in a good way? Are others shocked by the way I love, bring peace, or radiate joy? Are there things preventing these things from being true? What might I need from the Holy Spirit to do such good in the world?
