A Lenten Collect to Escape Pride
Lord of all people, who knows the deep thoughts of our hearts, keep us from pride and the belief that we are superior to others, that we would not separate ourselves from others, but would remember that we are likewise and always in need of your salvation, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who made a way for our redemption and sat down at your right hand in the Spirit. Amen.
'At that very time there were some present who told him about the Galileans whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices. He asked them, "Do you think that because these Galileans suffered in this way they were worse sinners than all other Galileans?"' - Luke 13:1-2
