A Collect to Not be Anxious When God Seems Absent

Spirit of God, who like wind is not seen yet affects us all, when we cannot find you, let us not be troubled, but teach us to trust that you are where it is needful for you to be and that we will find you where it is appropriate for you to be found, through Jesus Christ our Savior, who is alive and reigns in glory with you and the Father forever. Amen. ‘When his parents saw him they were astonished; and his mother said to him, “Child, why have you treated us like this? Look, your father and I have been searching for you in great anxiety.” He said to them, “Why were you searching for me? Did you not know that I must be in my Father’s house?”‘ – Luke 2:48-49
