A Collect to Not Be Overwhelmed by Fear
Lord God Almighty, who is greater than we are able to understand, we are small and often frightened creatures, fragile and easily crushed by the world. Let not our fears overwhelm us and keep us from your work, but may your Spirit work in us to provide all that we need to proclaim your truth and love into the world, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
'For this reason I remind you to rekindle the gift of God that is within you through the laying on of my hands; for God did not give us a spirit of cowardice, but rather a spirit of power and of love and of self-discipline.' - 2 Tim. 1:6-7
