A Collect for Knowledge of God Leading to True Life

Living God, whose joy overflows into life for all, draw us into real knowledge and relationship with you, that we would experience the life that you desire for us and have longed to share with your creation, a life that does not end, but is sustained by your love, joy, and power, through Jesus Christ, who like the Holy Spirit, was sent by you to be with us and to reveal yourself to us. Amen. ‘Y ou have given him authority over all people, to give eternal life to all whom you have given him. And this is eternal life, that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.’ – John 17:2-3
