A Collect for New Life

Lord Jesus, only begotten son of the Father, grant to us new birth, a new life that comes from the Father, and help us to grow in that new life that we would see the kingdom of God in our midst and live by the laws and customs of your reign, through you who gave yourself for our sake and was given life again to reign with the Father and Holy Spirit forever in glory. Amen. ‘Jesus answered him, “Very truly, I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God without being born from above.”‘ – John 3:3
