A Collect to Not be Conformed to the World

Spirit of God, who works in the minds and hearts of those who cling to you, keep us from living according to the rules and culture of the world, that we would not value passing and broken treasures nor give in to sins that corrupt the soul, but would embrace your ways and your values, to live as we were made by your own design, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who reigns with you and the Father in glory everlasting. Amen. ‘Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds, so that you may discern what is the will of God–what is good and acceptable and perfect.’ – Rom. 12:2
