A Collect for When We Feel Alone in Conflict

Lord Christ, of whose body we are a part, let us not forget that we are part of the gathering of your people and that when we are in conflict, we are not alone, but have others in your body with whom we may find support and solace, through you who with the Father and Holy Spirit live in perfect love now and forever. Amen. ‘ If another member of the church sins against you, go and point out the fault when the two of you are alone. If the member listens to you, you have regained that one. But if you are not listened to, take one or two others along with you, so that every word may be confirmed by the evidence of two or three witnesses.’ – Matthew 18:15-16
