A Collect to Be Encouraged by God's Works Around Us
Anointed One, upon whom rested the Holy Spirit and the pleasure of the Father, help us to see the works that you are doing, that we might recognize your actions in the world and believe that you are still present, working toward what is good, and both take comfort and seek to join your labor of redemption, through you who speaks life into the world through the power of the Father and Holy Spirit. Amen.
