A Collect to Trust that God is Present

God of great power, whose eyes miss nothing that happens in all creation, keep us from despair and falling into believing that you are not with us, that we might cling ever to you, even when our hearts struggle to feel you, and trust that you are at work even in our troubles and pain, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who shared our pains and temptations and intercedes for us before you in the Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘Why do you say, O Jacob, and speak, O Israel, “My way is hidden from the LORD, and my right is disregarded by my God”?’ – Isa. 40:27
