Two Collects for Encouraging and Being Encouraged

Risen Lord, who continually breathes life into your people, fill our hearts with joy at what you are doing in us, that our stories of your work would spill out of us as we talk with others, and may they be encouraged and strengthened by what they hear, through you who lives with the Father and Holy Spirit, one God, world without end. Amen.

Risen Lord, who continually breathes life into your people, encourage our hearts through hearing what you have done in others, that we would find joy in your work and be strengthened as we look for you in our own lives, through you who lives with the Father and Holy Spirit, one God, world without end. Amen.


'They said to each other, "Were not our hearts burning within us while he was talking to us on the road, while he was opening the scriptures to us?" That same hour they got up and returned to Jerusalem; and they found the eleven and their companions gathered together. They were saying, "The Lord has risen indeed, and he has appeared to Simon!" Then they told what had happened on the road, and how he had been made known to them in the breaking of the bread.' - Luke 24:32-35
