A Collect for Sanctification

Righteous Father, holy and mighty, sanctify us through your word and through the Holy Spirit whom you have sent to live within us, that we would grow increasingly to live and walk as your beloved Son did when he was among us on earth, and we would follow in his footsteps, just, merciful, and humble, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. ‘Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth. As you have sent me into the world, so I have sent them into the world. And for their sakes I sanctify myself, so that they also may be sanctified in truth.’ – John 17:17-19
