A Collect to Receive the Spirit Fully

Spirit of truth, who abides with us and in us, give us grace to cast off those things that prevent us from receiving you, that our attachments to the ways of the world would not keep us from you, but we would come to know you as we are known, through Jesus Christ, our Lord, who abides with you and the Father in perfect knowledge and love, now and forever. Amen. ‘ This is the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him. You know him, because he abides with you, and he will be in you.’ – John 14:17
