A Collect for Faith in God's Promises
Almighty God, who speaks forth into creation all that was and is and shall be, grant to us the faith to trust in the fulfillment of what you have spoken to us, that we, like Mary, might be blessed and possess perseverance as we wait for your appearing, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who learned patience through his incarnation and now reigns in glory with you and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
"And blessed is she who believed that there would be a fulfillment of what was spoken to her by the Lord." - Luke 1:45
