A Collect for Perseverance in Trust of God’s Promises

Ancient One, who was before all things and shall endure forever, grant us faith to trust in your promises, that you will not forsake us but fulfill your word, that we might not falter or slide into despair, but hold on to your faithfulness, believing in your goodness and leaning on the truth that you have spoken, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who with you and the Holy Spirit was and is and is to come. Amen. “He has helped his servant Israel, in remembrance of his mercy, according to the promise he made to our ancestors, to Abraham and to his descendants forever.” – Luke 1:54-55
