A Collect to Imitate Christ
Holy Spirit, who enlivens our hearts and guides our paths, teach us to imitate our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, that we would live as he lived and so grow ever more to be like him, filled with virtue and acting in goodness, truth, and love for all God's creation, through him who was raised to new life and now reigns in heaven with the Father through you. Amen.
'And you became imitators of us and of the Lord, for in spite of persecution you received the word with joy inspired by the Holy Spirit.' - 1 Thes. 1:6
