A Collect for the Spirit’s Empowerment

Spirit of God, by whom we take our very breath, we are weak and frail, struggling to carry out our good desires and trapped by vice and sin. Take our intentions to live well and empower us to follow through, that we would become worthy of your invitation to live in your kingdom and you might be glorified by what we become, through Jesus Christ our redeemer and Lord, who reigns through you with the Father in Heaven. Amen. ‘To this end we always pray for you, asking that our God will make you worthy of his call and will fulfill by his power every good resolve and work of faith.’ – 2 Thes. 1:11
