A Collect to Not Be Afraid of God’s New Work

Lord Jesus Christ, who so often works in ways we do not expect, we are sometimes frightened when you do things we did not see coming. Soothe our hearts and give us comfort when you are doing something new, that we would not shy away from what you are doing, but would reach out and take your hand, to join the work you are doing, through you who with the Father and Holy Spirit are always at work, bringing about something new. Amen. ‘ But when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were terrified, saying, “It is a ghost!” And they cried out in fear.’ – Matthew 14:26
