A Collect for Rescue from our Fear

Lord of heaven and earth, at whose command the wind and waves obey, calm our fears by making your presence known, that we would not succumb to anxiety and panic and so ruin ourselves, but find you comforting and protecting us from that which threatens, through you who reigns in heaven with the Father and Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘But he said to them, “It is I; do not be afraid.”‘ – John 6:20
