A Collect for Peace in Anxiety and Fear

Steadfast Jesus, our place of refuge and security, help us to receive the peace that you offer, that we who are troubled by the things of this world and those things we fear may overwhelm or harm us might experience the calm and assurance of your care and love, able to rest in you, through you who reigns as king of all creation with the Father and Holy Spirit in glory. Amen. ‘Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not let them be afraid.’ – John 14:27
