A Collect for Life

Wellspring of all being, through whom we receive real life, make us receptive to your ways, that we might not go through our time on earth as if already in the grave, but find life through you and in your people both now and in eternity, through you who was raised by the power of the Father and Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘ Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. Those who believe in me, even though they die, will live, and everyone who lives and believes in me will never die.”‘ – John 11:25-26
