A Collect to Lift Our Eyes

Heavenly Father, shield to those who call on your name, lift our eyes toward you, that we would trust in you for our protection, provision, and redemption and we would be cared for in the arms of one who loved us into being and will love us to the end, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives with you and the Holy Spirit in perfect harmony, now and forever. Amen. “Now when these things begin to take place, stand up and raise your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.” – Luke 21:28
