A Lenten Collect to Go into Difficult Places

Spirit of God, great counselor and wellspring of power and goodness, grant us courage to follow where Jesus has gone, that with a willingness to go into difficult and dangerous places, we might step beyond and through them into places of glory and honor and life, through Christ our redeemer, who lives and reigns with the Father in you, world without end. Amen.

‘Whoever serves me must follow me, and where I am, there will my servant be also. Whoever serves me, the Father will honor.’ – John 12:26
