A Collect to Never Lose Hope

Jehovah Shammah, who will never leave us or forsake us, keep us from being overwhelmed by anxiety and despair, and remind us of your everlasting presence and goodness, that we would always be able to hold on to hope and trust that the darkness will never be greater than your light, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. ‘The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overcome it.’ – John 1:5
