Collect for Christmas Day
Posted by Ros Clarke, 25 Dec 2017
As we celebrate the birth of God's Son as a child, we thank God for our adoption as his children.
Collect for Christmas Day (BCP):
who hast given us thy only-begotten Son to take our nature upon him,
and as at this time to be born of a pure Virgin:
Grant that we being regenerate,
and made thy children by adoption and grace,
may daily be by thy Holy Spirit;
through the same our Lord Jesus Christ,
who liveth and reigneth with thee and the same Spirit,
ever one God,
world without end.
Amen! And may it be a very happy Christmas for you all.
We’ll be back on January 1st with a New Year podcast review of Emma Scrivener’s book, A New Day.
