A Collect to Remain with God

Glorious Lord, whose face we cannot see lest we be overwhelmed, even though we do not always recognize when you are present, fill our hearts with faith in your goodness, that we might not stumble when we fail to see you, but would still cling to you as much as our souls are able, through Jesus Christ, who was raised from the dead by the power of the Father and the Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘ When she had said this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing there, but she did not know that it was Jesus.’ – John 20:14
