A Collect for Life and Freedom
Spirit of God, who brings comfort and reassurance, we wait for good news from you, trusting that you will give us what we need in your time. Free us from the oppression of sin and those who wear us down, and bring life to those who are broken and hurting, that we would see you as the oasis in the desert, water to our thirsty souls, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
'The spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me, because the LORD has anointed me; he has sent me to bring good news to the oppressed, to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and release to the prisoners.' - Isa. 61:1
