A Collect to Spread the Gospel
Lord Jesus, who set before us the plan for the redemption of the world, put your words in our mouths, and give us courage to speak them, that your forgiveness and salvation would be heard by all the world, and all would repent of their foolish ways and believe in your path toward good, through you who suffered and rose from the dead by the power of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
'And he said to them, "Thus it is written, that the Messiah is to suffer and to rise from the dead on the third day, and that repentance and forgiveness of sins is to be proclaimed in his name to all nations, beginning from Jerusalem."' - Luke 24:46-47
