A Collect for Comfort and Hope

Lord Jesus Christ, who has loved us with eternal grace, give us comfort and hope that will not be crushed by the struggles of this world, that we might be able to continue walking in your ways this day and forever, through you who received the love of the Father and Holy Spirit and loves all in return. Amen. ‘Now may our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and through grace gave us eternal comfort and good hope, comfort your hearts and strengthen them in every good work and word.’ – 2 Thes. 2:16-17
