A Collect to Imitate Christ in the World

Beloved of the Father, who revealed the character of God through your life in the flesh, envelope us in peace and fashion us in your image, that as your followers, we might not mar the name of the Lord, but display to your creation your nature of love, trust, and humility, through you who lives in perfect union with the Father and Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘ Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, so I send you.”‘ – John 20:21
