A Collect for Remembering Jesus in Times of Trouble

Lord Jesus, our source of help and comfort, give us courage to call to you in troubles, and let us not forget your presence with us, that we would find you ready and able to help us and be present in our need, through you who lives in eternal communion with the Father and Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘They came to Jericho. As he and his disciples and a large crowd were leaving Jericho, Bartimaeus son of Timaeus, a blind beggar, was sitting by the roadside. When he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to shout out and say, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!”‘ – Mark 10:46-47
