A Collect to Persevere in God’s Call for Us

Risen Lord, who redeems even the wounds of your crucifixion, we receive the work that you have given us to do in the world. Give us perseverance that we would remain faithful to that work, fulfilling your desire and call for all those you have created and bringing them into your kingdom of justice and love, through you who died and rose again to the glory of the Father in the Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, so I send you.”‘ – John 20:21
