A Collect for Patience in Trouble
Lord over all time, who sees the past and the future, give us patience when you do not respond immediately in our time of trial, that we may trust in your wisdom and believe that you are not slow to act, but are bringing about something we cannot yet see, through you who sees what the Father is doing and joins him and the Holy Spirit in bringing about redemption. Amen.
