A Lenten Collect to Believe in God's Love
Loving Father, who watches for our repentance with compassion and anticipation, may our hearts see you for the loving Father that you are, that we would not fear to return to you and to admit our wrongs but would know that you are generous and eager to embrace us as your beloved children, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who loved us to the end and sat down at your right hand in the Holy Spirit. Amen.
'So he set off and went to his father. But while he was still far off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion; he ran and put his arms around him and kissed him.' - Luke 15:20'
