A Collect for Presence

Beloved Friend, who walks alongside us in the way, stay with us in our need, that we would not be left alone to make sense of a turbulent world, but would find both wisdom and companionship along the journey, through you who with the Father and Holy Spirit live together in perfect love. Amen. ‘ As they came near the village to which they were going, he walked ahead as if he were going on. But they urged him strongly, saying, “Stay with us, because it is almost evening and the day is now nearly over.” So he went in to stay with them.’ – Luke 24:29
