Collect for William Law

O God, by whose grace your servant William Law, kindled with the flame of your love, became a burning and shining light in your church: Grant that we also may be aflame with the spirit of love and discipline, and walk before you as children of light; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
