A Collect to Give when we Receive

Son of Man, whose life was lived in service of the Father and of all those you love, give us right hearts, secure in our life in you, that when we are given power and glory, we would not be tempted to hoard or use it for ourselves alone, but be freely able to give to another, as you did with the Father, through you who is always pointing to the Father and Holy Spirit and receiving from them. Amen. ‘ After Jesus had spoken these words, he looked up to heaven and said, “Father, the hour has come; glorify your Son so that the Son may glorify you.”‘ – John 17:1
