A Collect to Turn to God with our Needs

Loving Lord, who cares for all our troubles, make us always mindful of turning to you with our needs and the needs of those close to us, that you might share with us our burdens and perhaps reach out and bring us relief and strength, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who healed many on earth and now intercedes for us all before your throne in the Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘Now Simon’s mother-in-law was in bed with a fever, and they told him about her at once.’ – Mark 1:30
