A Collect for Faith Even in Challenge and Loss

Holy Spirit, who moves in our hearts to accomplish your will, give us faith that can withstand disappointment and suffering, that when when face trials, pain, and loss, we would still look to you and trust in your goodness and power, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who clung to the Father in Gethsemane and was raised to new life through you. Amen. ‘Martha said to Jesus, “Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died. But even now I know that God will give you whatever you ask of him.”‘ – John 11:21-22
