Morning Collect for Monday

O God our deliverer,

give us strength as we are tempted
to forget you
and forget neighbor
and instead to serve ourselves.

Inspire and hear our prayers for justice,
for mercy, for healing,
for wholeness
for all whom you have made,
all who are the apple of your eye.

We all crowd together under the shadow of your wing.
Help us to see your blessed Son
in the faces of our fellow huddlers,
to touch his wounds where they bleed in others.
