Let us pray (in silence) [that we may love God in all things and above all things]

Pause

God, [or Gracious God or Living and gracious God]
you have prepared for those who love you
good things which no eye can see,
and which surpass our understanding;
pour into our hearts such longing for you,
that we,
loving you in all things and above all things,
may obtain your promises,
which exceed all that we can desire;
through Jesus Christ
who is alive with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
Amen.

There are a number of collects used on this Sunday. The traditional collect I am choosing to give the commentary on is the one that The Episcopal Church uses for this Sunday. The commentary is here.
