A Collect for Faith to Do the Absurd

Lord Jesus Christ, who bends nature itself to your will, give us the faith and courage to obey your words, even when they seem absurd or futile, that we might see your power displayed and reap the benefits of your wisdom and come to trust you in even greater measure, through you who escaped the grip of death and ascended to the Father and Holy Spirit in glory. Amen. ‘Jesus said to them, “Children, you have no fish, have you?” They answered him, “No.” He said to them, “Cast the net to the right side of the boat, and you will find some.” So they cast it, and now they were not able to haul it in because there were so many fish.’ – John 21:5-6
