A Collect to Remember to Encourage One Another

Gracious God, who declared us precious in your sight, help us to remember to encourage one another and support one another, showing in deed as well as word that we are beloved, that we might thereby build one another up and strengthen each other until you appear and take us home to be with you, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who with you and the Holy Spirit is preparing a place for us to abide in your presence forever and ever. Amen. ‘Therefore encourage one another and build up each other, as indeed you are doing.’ – 1 Thes. 5:11
