A Collect for Both Hope and Patience

Lord Jesus, who is preparing a place for us in the presence of God, the Father, teach us both to hope and to wait with patience, that our hearts would be enlivened and our faith and trust would be strengthened as we await the redemption that you are preparing for us and for all creation, through you who through suffering opened the way to reconcile with the Father through the Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience.’ – Rom. 8:25
