A Collect for Salvation from Trouble and Sin

Mighty Lord, at whose word sprang both life and death, show your power and bring life and rescue to your people in need, that we might escape from sin and evil and suffering and shout praise for your goodness to those you have created in love, through Jesus Christ, who lives with you and the Holy Spirit in perfect glory, world without end. Amen. ‘ He asked them, “What things?” They replied, “The things about Jesus of Nazareth, who was a prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people.”‘ – Luke 24:19
