A Collect to Not be Troubled When Calamity Comes

Almighty God, whose power is beyond all our understanding, do not let us be surprised when trouble and calamity occurs, knowing that you foretold such things. Remind us that you are sovereign above all, and you will yet appear at the appropriate time, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit in perpetual glory, now and forever. Amen. ‘The sun shall be turned to darkness and the moon to blood, before the coming of the Lord’s great and glorious day.’ – Acts 2:20
