A Collect in Anxiety

God of peace, who knows anxiety and temptations, for you lived as we did, help us to accept that we cannot escape our fears and anxieties in this life, yet still find solace in your presence and care, that we might not live in denial of our state and might find that you give us all we need, even with trembling hearts, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who stayed connected to you through the Holy Spirit always. Amen. ‘ Do not let your hearts be troubled. Believe in God, believe also in me.’ – John 14:1
