A Collect to be Moved by the Spirit

Spirit of God, who is present and moving throughout the Earth, may we be so moved by your presence, attentive to what you are doing around us, that we would be filled with anticipation and joy, praising you for the blessings you bring about in the world and in us, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who through your power defeated the grave and ascended to the right hand of the Father. Amen. ‘When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the child leaped in her womb. And Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit and exclaimed with a loud cry, “Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb.”‘ – Luke 1:41-42
