A Collect for Boldness in Prayer

Lord Jesus, our friend and mentor, give us boldness as we come to you and as we stand before the throne of the Almighty, that we would present our needs with confidence in your generosity and trust that you will provide for us what we need, through you who reigns in eternity with the Father and Holy Spirit, one Trinity in glory. Amen. “I tell you, even though he will not get up and give him anything because he is his friend, at least because of his persistence he will get up and give him whatever he needs. So I say to you, ask, and it will be given you; search, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened for you.” – Luke 11:8-9
