A Collect for Humility and Courage when we Do Not Know

Gracious Teacher, who is patient with us as we grow to be like you, give us humility to be honest when we do not understand and courage to ask for help in becoming wise, that we might, like children, grow up without fear into maturity and take our place in your community of the beloved, through you who with the Father and Holy Spirit gives wisdom to all who ask. Amen. ‘Nicodemus said to him, “How can these things be?”‘ – John 3:9
