A Collect for Protection in This World

Holy Father, who bestows glory and blessing on whomever you choose, protect us from evil and shield us in the name of Jesus, your son, that we could continue to walk in this world safe and unafraid, fulfilling the works you have given us to do and thankful for your care, through Jesus Christ our Lord, whose glory is yours and who returns glory back to you with the Holy Spirit who shares the glory of the Father and the Son. Amen. ‘And now I am no longer in the world, but they are in the world, and I am coming to you. Holy Father, protect them in your name that you have given me, so that they may be one, as we are one.’ – John 17:11
