A Collect to Believe in God's Love for Us
Holy One of Israel, who rescued your people from slavery and bondage, help us to believe in your love for us, that we would trust in your love and the value you place on us and your willingness to act on our behalf and for our good, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who willingly gave himself in return for us and was resurrected to sit at your right hand in the Holy Spirit. Amen.
'For I am the LORD your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior. I give Egypt as your ransom, Ethiopia and Seba in exchange for you. Because you are precious in my sight, and honored, and I love you, I give people in return for you, nations in exchange for your life.' - Isa. 43:3-4
