A Collect to Desire to Enter into Light

God of light and life, whose kingdom rules with forgiveness and love, change our hearts to long to leave the darkness and to enter into your light, that we would no longer stumble and hurt ourselves in hiding and secrecy but would be willing to know and be known fully as your beloved creations, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit in glory forever. Amen. ‘He has rescued us from the power of darkness and transferred us into the kingdom of his beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.’ – Colossians 1:13-14
