A Collect to Receive the Spirit

Father of lights, in whom we live and move and have our being, may we receive the Holy Spirit you have sent and allow him to work in us, that we would be purified of the unrighteousness in our hearts and be made increasingly like you and able to do your works in the world, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who with you and the Holy Spirit reign in glory eternal. Amen. ‘When he had said this, he breathed on them and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit.”‘ – John 20:22
