Morning Collect for Friday after Ash Wednesday

O God of all our days,
whose eye is on the sparrow,
uphold us in our efforts, 
however small,
to put our trust in you.

You know our going out
and our coming in
and the number of hairs on our muddled heads.
We are written on the palms of your
generous hands.

May we know your love
and accept your providence 
and graceful abiding
by turning to you again
with purified and grateful hearts.
