A Collect to Fix Our Eyes on the Lord

Heavenly Father, who is our sure foundation, we are often distracted by the things of this world that seem important and sometimes frightening. Give us steadfastness to fix our eyes on you, and when we have fallen short and fear for ourselves, remind us to cry out to you for salvation, trusting in your love, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who with you and the Holy Spirit watch over all your creation. Amen. ‘ But when he noticed the strong wind, he became frightened, and beginning to sink, he cried out, “Lord, save me!”‘ – Matthew 14:30
