A Collect for Courage and Trust in God’s Protection

Lord Jesus Christ, by whose authority we are ambassadors to the world, grant us faith to trust in your protection, that even as we fear the works of the enemy, we would yet have courage to step out, knowing you are our shield, through you who endured even death and emerged victorious and returned to the Father and Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘See, I have given you authority to tread on snakes and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy; and nothing will hurt you.’ – Luke 10:19
