A Collect for Salvation from Our Troubles

Gracious God, who knows our frailties and weaknesses, have mercy on us who live in a broken world and among broken and sinful people. Save us from our troubles, and bring us to your safe pasture where we might feel the comfort of your good kingdom, through Jesus Christ our Redeemer, who walked in our flesh and ascended to you in the Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘…and all flesh shall see the salvation of God.’ – Luke 3:6
