A Collect to Throw Off Our Old Life

Good Shepherd, who invites us to come into his flock, give us such hope and joy in you that we would throw off all those things that are of our old life, leaving them behind to be embraced in your new life and new way of being, through you who holds the power of the Father through the presence of the Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘So throwing off his cloak, he sprang up and came to Jesus.’ – Mark 10:50
