A Collect to Become Awake

Holy Spirit, counselor, guide, and you who are closest to our very souls, wake us from our sleep, and enliven those parts of our hearts that we have closed off and made dull that we might present our whole selves to you and would be fully present to your calling, able to respond to your voice of love, through Jesus Christ our great teacher who is alive and reigns in glory alongside you and our Heavenly Father. Amen. ‘Besides this, you know what time it is, how it is now the moment for you to wake from sleep. For salvation is nearer to us now than when we became believers.’ – Romans 13:11
