A Collect to Seek Jesus’s Presence

Lord Jesus Christ, who is surrounded by power and goodness, grant to us faith that believes in the power of your presence, that we might long to come close to you and be transformed by your power and love, through you who died and rose to new life and is seated at the right hand of the Father in the Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘Then suddenly a woman who had been suffering from hemorrhages for twelve years came up behind him and touched the fringe of his cloak, for she said to herself, “If I only touch his cloak, I will be made well.” Jesus turned, and seeing her he said, “Take heart, daughter; your faith has made you well.” and instantly the woman was made well.’ – Matthew 9:20-22
