A Collect for More Faith

Resurrected Lord, who has made himself vulnerable for our sake, give us what we need that our faith and trust in your would be strengthened and we might not be weighed down by loss, frustration, or disappointment, but be lifted up by your care for our feeble hearts, through you lives with the Father and Holy Spirit in glory. Amen. ‘ So the other disciples told him, “We have seen the Lord.” But he said to them, “Unless I see the mark of the nails in his hands, and put my finger in the mark of the nails and my hand in his side, I will not believe.” A week later his disciples were again in the house, and Thomas was with them. Although the doors were shut, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you.” Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here and see my hands. Reach out your hand and put it in my side. Do not doubt but believe.”‘ – John 20:25-27
