A Collect to Not Fear the Threats of Mere Humans

Almighty God, who holds the power of life and death, teach us to put our security in you and in your eternal power, that we would not fear those who threaten and assail us here on earth, but recognize that we are ultimately safe with you who will receive us in eternity in the proper time, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who was attacked by evil men but was raised to new life by you through the power of the Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘Do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul; rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell.’ – Matthew 10:28
