A Collect for the World to Fear God

Almighty God, whose power is greater than all we could imagine, make your presence known to the world, that those who plot evil might fear for themselves and relent from their plans, and all the world might commit to your ways of peace and love toward one another, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who gave himself for the world and now reigns with you in heaven in the power of the Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘O that you would tear open the heavens and come down, so that the mountains would quake at your presence– as when fire kindles brushwood and the fire causes water to boil– to make your name known to your adversaries, so that the nations might tremble at your presence!’ – Isaiah 64:1-2
