A Christmas Collect

It's a Christmas Collect somewhat different from the one in the BCP.

O God, you make us glad by the yearly festival of the birth of Jesus the Messiah, Prophet and Son whose message and ministry provide for us light in the midst of darkness, hope in the midst of apathy, and strength in the midst of weakness: Grant that we, who see him as our inspiration in this world may hold fast to our faith and relationship with you, knowing that nothing in heaven or on earth can part us from your love; this we pray in the name of the Creator, Redeemer, and Sanctifier God. Amen.
