A Collect to Remember God’s Presence

All-seeing God, who watches over all that passes in this creation you have made, draw our minds and hearts to remember that you are present in destruction and present in creation, with us in both evil and good, that we would remain connected to you regardless of our circumstances and trust in the love that you have for us at all times, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. ‘The days are surely coming, says the LORD, when I will sow the house of Israel and the house of Judah with the seed of humans and the seed of animals. And just as I have watched over them to pluck up and break down, to overthrow, destroy, and bring evil, so I will watch over them to build and to plant, says the LORD.’ – Jeremiah 31:27-28
