Collect:  Mighty God,  to you belong the mysteries of the universe.  You transform shepherds into kings, the smallest seeds into magnificent trees, and hardened hearts into loving ones.  May your life-giving Spirit re-create us in your image and shape us into your purposes, through Jesus Christ.  Amen.
