A Collect for Strength to Endure

Almighty God, who gives strength to endure the trials of this world, keep our eyes fixed on you, alert for your words and your actions, that we would be attentive to what you are doing and able to steer our way through this troubled world until we stand before your beloved Son, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who reigns with you and the Holy Spirit in glory forever and ever. Amen. “Be alert at all times, praying that you may have the strength to escape all these things that will take place, and to stand before the Son of Man.” – Luke 21:36
