A Collect for Reassurance

Glorified Savior, who shows yourself to those you love, bring peace to us who are uncertain, frightened, and unsteady, who do not understand our place in your world or struggle against enemies or even ourselves, that we would be reassured by your presence and your invitation to be with you and our hearts would be strengthened to continue along the path you have laid for us, through you who reigns with the Father and Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘When it was evening on that day, the first day of the week, and the doors of the house where the disciples had met were locked for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you.”‘ – John 20:19
