Creator of all things, in the beginning You were there, and nothing at all that exists can possibly exist apart from You. You reign over all the earth, all the galaxies, and all the spirits. You keep watch over everything, and nothing escapes You. The entire history of the world is in Your hands; all of creation is firm, even if things appear otherwise to us, and even if the end appears to have found us out. Lord, shore up our fearful heart. We believe, only help our unbelief. Give us the courage to undertake Your will again today, and tomorrow, and after tomorrow. Amen.
