A Collect for Joy Even in Suffering

Lord God Almighty, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavens, draw our hearts toward the gifts you have given us and to the joy of your presence, that even in suffering of trials and difficulties, we might yet rejoice and trust in your goodness, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives together with you and the Holy Spirit in perfect joy forever. Amen. ‘In this you rejoice, even if now for a little while you have had to suffer various trials.’ – 1 Pet. 1:6
