A Collect to Grow to Bless the World

Blessed Father, who rains down blessings upon all your creation, we are humbled and honored to be chosen by you. Give us grace to live worthy of that choosing, that we would grow more and more like you and be capable of blessing all those we touch, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen. ‘Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places, just as he chose us in Christ before the foundation of the world to be holy and blameless before him in love.’ – Eph. 1:3-4
