A Collect to Remember God’s Protection

Almighty God, against whom no force can prevail, when we are persecuted, threatened, and attacked, remind us of your promises, that your gathering, the people who together abide in your kingdom, cannot be destroyed and that ultimately we are safe in your care, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who, though assaulted and killed, yet still lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘ And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not prevail against it.’ – Matthew 16:18
