A Collect of Thanks for Jesus’ Coming Into Our Fearful Places

Rabboni, who was resurrected to lead the way to new life, we praise you for entering even into our places of fear and hiding, bringing word of welcome and love even for we who yet working out our trust in your power and goodness. Grant that we would receive you and the comfort you provide, through you who reigns now in glory forever with the Father and Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘When it was evening on that day, the first day of the week, and the doors of the house where the disciples had met were locked for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you.”‘ – John 20:19
