A Collect for Truth in Opposition and Conflict

Strong Tower, to whom we can run to find safety, give us courage to speak the truth in the face of anger and opposition, that even though we may find ourselves ostracized or afraid, we might yet be in your company, and your truth may still take root even in resistant hearts, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who was persecuted for the sake of righteousness yet sat down at your right hand with the Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘” If this man were not from God, he could do nothing.” They answered him, “You were born entirely in sins, and are you trying to teach us?” And they drove him out.’ – John 9:33-34
