A Collect for Fear in Approaching God
Merciful savior, whose compassion is beyond our understanding, we often expect that you will be angry with us for our sins and misdeeds. Show us your compassion, and let our hearts take it in, that we would come to trust you as a loving companion and lord, and our fears would be replaced with faith, through you who reigns in perfect love with the Father and Holy Spirit forever. Amen.
'But the woman, knowing what had happened to her, came in fear and trembling, fell down before him, and told him the whole truth. He said to her, "Daughter, your faith has made you well; go in peace, and be healed of your disease."' - Mark 5:33-34
