Whether we admit it or not, we are all in need of some sort of conversion. We live in a fallen world and continually work against a variety of temptations, often falling into old habits that lead us away from God.
Here is a collect prayer asking to experience a conversion as St. Paul did, turning our lives around to be closer to God.
O God, who taught the whole world
through the preaching of the blessed Apostle Paul,
draw us, we pray, nearer to you
through the example of him
whose conversion we celebrate today,
and so make us witnesses to your truth in the world.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the
unity of the Holy Spirit, God, for ever and ever.
