A Collect to Endure Mockery Well

Lord Jesus, who endured much for the sake of those you love, give us strength to endure the taunts of those who laugh at our trust in the Father, that we would still go about the work you have given us and might even love those, knowing they do not understand what they do, through you who was glorified and raised to new life by the Father through the Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘He said, “Go away; for the girl is not dead but sleeping.” And they laughed at him.’ – Matthew 9:24
