A Collect for Many to Turn to Christ

Light of the nations, who has come into the world to give your light to all, praise to you for revealing yourself to the world and bringing salvation to all who trust you. Grant that many would turn to you as their source of consolation and redemption, through you who reigns in glory with the Father and Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘ Simeon took him in his arms and praised God, saying, “Master, now you are dismissing your servant in peace, according to your word; for my eyes have seen your salvation, which you have prepared in the presence of all peoples, a light for revelation to the Gentiles and for glory to your people Israel.”‘ – Luke 2:28-32
