A Collect for Perseverance

Longsuffering Jesus, who endured greater pain than we could comprehend, give us endurance to persevere through the difficulties and trials of this world, that we would attain to the next life and in great joy see you face to face, through you who with the Father and Holy Spirit are preparing a new heaven and a new earth. Amen. ‘Y ou will be hated by all because of my name. But the one who endures to the end will be saved.’ – Matthew 10:22
