A Collect to Grow in Wisdom and Favor in the New Year

Holy Spirit of God, our counselor and guide, teach us to grow as did our beloved Lord in this new year, that we might increase in wisdom as we attain years and grow in favor with you and with those around us, through Jesus Christ our teacher, who humbled himself under the authority of the Father and was raised to his right hand in you. Amen. ‘And Jesus increased in wisdom and in years, and in divine and human favor.’ – Luke 2:52
