A Collect for Strength to Do Good

Loving Father, who has comforted us through your grace, strengthen our hearts, and turn them toward your ways that we would be able to do the good works you have prepared for us and would bless others as you have blessed us, through Jesus Christ our teacher, who went before us to show us the way to you through the power of the Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘Now may our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and through grace gave us eternal comfort and good hope, comfort your hearts and strengthen them in every good work and word.’ – 2 Thes. 2:16-17
