A Collect to Grow Wise and Strong

Holy Spirit of God, who fills us with your presence and guidance, help us, like Jesus, to grow strong and wise as we listen to you and follow your leading, that the favor of God would rest on us and we would become like the savior we serve, blameless and full of truth and love, through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen. ‘ The child grew and became strong, filled with wisdom; and the favor of God was upon him.’ – Luke 2:40
