A Collect for Strength in Weariness

Limitless God, whose strength endures forever, grant to us strength when we are weary and beaten down by the difficulties of this life, that we would have enough to continue onward, furthering your mission in the world and doing those good works you have prepared for us to bless the world and draw all people into your kingdom, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who endured the cross and now is seated at your right hand in the Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘He gives power to the faint, and strengthens the powerless. Even youths will faint and be weary, and the young will fall exhausted; but those who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.’ – Isa. 40:29-31
