A Collect to Endure Struggle and Suffering

Lord Jesus Christ, who endured suffering and death before entering into glory, teach us to endure the struggles and pains of this world with hope, that we would be able to endure as you did, knowing that our path may not always be easy or smooth, yet leads to a home in your perfect kingdom, through you who is alive and reigns forever with the Father and Holy Spirit. Amen. “Was it not necessary that the Messiah should suffer these things and then enter into his glory?” – Luke 24:26
