A Collect to Obey Despite Confusion

Lord of all knowledge, who has seen the end from the beginning, give us the willingness to do what you ask of us, even when we do not understand, that despite our confusion and discomfort, we might yet be obedient and be blessed by the unexpected results that you already know it will bring, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who followed you into death and life and now reigns with you in the Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘When he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, “Put out into the deep water and let down your nets for a catch.” Simon answered, “Master, we have worked all night long but have caught nothing. Yet if you say so, I will let down the nets.”‘ – Luke 5:4-5
