A Collect to Not be Afraid

Spirit of comfort, sent by the Father to draw us into the love of the Trinity, keep us from giving in to fear, but grant that we would remember your presence with us, that we would go out into the world, trusting that you are guiding all things toward what is good, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who reigns from on high with you and the Father, one God, forever and ever. Amen. ‘Then I said, “Ah, Lord GOD! Truly I do not know how to speak, for I am only a boy.” But the LORD said to me, “Do not say, ‘I am only a boy’; for you shall go to all to whom I send you, and you shall speak whatever I command you.”‘ – Jer. 1:6-7
