A Collect to Receive Jesus’ Coming

Blessed Jesus, whose light shines in the darkness, help us to receive you as you come into our world, not merely once, but continually, that we would become like you, children of our heavenly Father and those who trust in your goodness, through you who lives and reigns in unity with the Father and Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘But to all who received him, who believed in his name, he gave power to become children of God.’ – John 1:12
