Readings: Matthew 13:44-46 & Matthew 11:12.
Sentence: This is our God for whom we have waited; let us be glad and rejoice in his salvation.
Collect: Almighty God, you reign over all things and have created each one of us in your own image. Assist your people to give to earthly rulers and powers what belongs to them and to give our allegiance and ourselves to you alone, the one whose image is imprinted on every human soul. Through Jesus Christ our Liberator, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen
