A Collect to Look to Jesus for Redemption

Lord God of Hosts, who lifts up all who are brought low, as we look for redemption and salvation, longing for solutions to the troubles of this world, draw our eyes to Jesus, whom you sent as the center of history and the source of redemption and goodness for all those who will receive him, through him who ascended to your right hand in the power of the Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘ At that moment she came, and began to praise God and to speak about the child to all who were looking for the redemption of Jerusalem.’ – Luke 2:38
