A Collect to Be Joyful in Christ’s Creation of Us

Word of life, who was in the beginning with God, we praise you and thank you for your creation of us and the world for us to live in. Let us remember our place as creations of yours, that we would find our joy your world and your presence in it and revel in the wonder that you desired us into being, through you who lives in joy with the Father and Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘ In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through him, and without him not one thing came into being.’ – John 1:1-3
