A Collect for Letting Go of Fallible Security

Almighty God, in whose hand alone is a certain future, give us strength to let go of the earthly and fallible things we cling to for our security. Increase our faith that we would trust in your power, your goodness, and your love, that we would find shelter in the arms of a compassionate Father, through Jesus Christ your son, our Savior, who lives with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen. ‘But David said to the Philistine, “You come to me with sword and spear and javelin; but I come to you in the name of the LORD of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied.”‘ – 1 Sam. 17:45
