A Collect

A collect based on Karl Barth, Church Dogmatics I.2 paragraph 15.3

Loving God, we have no capacity of our own to know you, or to come close to you. But you come to us born of the Virgin Mary. That birth brings you close to us and gives us the means to know you. Grant that we receive and welcome this mystery and so receive adoption as your children, coming to share that new human nature you have shown in Jesus Christ. We ask this in his name, who was born of the virgin, our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
