Collect of the Day

God of the unexpected,

You take what is old and make it new,

And what is dead and bring it to life;

You take our false expectations

And transform them into your truth.

Help us to accept the challenge of your call,

So that, trusting in your promise,

We journey by faith in Jesus Christ. Amen.

We pray for all clergy and people and their ministries in the Diocese of Ottawa.
