God our Father, you so loved the world that you sent your only Son to bring life to those who were without life. Raise up in him all those who long to be delivered from the oppression of sin and death. We rejoice in hope as we look forward to the celebration of his coming, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God, for ever and ever. Amen.
