A Collect for Courage in Vulnerability

Beloved Lord, who still bears the scars from your suffering, make us willing to reveal our wounds to one another as you revealed them to your disciples, that we would not be overcome with shame, but find compassion that leads to healing and redemption, through you who abides with the Father and Holy Spirit in perfect love, now and forever. Amen. ‘ After he said this, he showed them his hands and his side. Then the disciples rejoiced when they saw the Lord.’ – John 20:20
