A Collect for the 3rd Week after Pentecost

Merciful Lord, who has known trials and suffering and who has acknowledged that we will endure the same, give us strength to hold on to your care for us, that we will not be left alone in the wilderness to die, but are beloved in your sight, and give us also courage to take up our crosses and follow you into death, that we might find the life that you have prepared for us, who with the Father and Holy Spirit live forever in Heaven, one God, now and forever. Amen. Hagar and the Angel by Giuseppe Bottani #Collect #Prayer #Death #Cross #Hagar #Ishmael

A Collect for the 2nd Week after Pentecost

Master and Teacher, who has proclaimed the good news of the kingdom and displayed the truth of your gospel to many, send laborers into the harvest, and grant us steadfastness as we go, that we might not falter in times of trial and persecution, be persevere, knowing that we are your ambassadors, and you have trod this path before us, who with the Father and Holy Spirit lives together in perfect unity, now and forever. Amen. #Collect #Prayer #Disciples #Persecution

A Collect for Trinity Sunday

Resplendent Lord, who was sent by the Father, who walked among us, and who remains with us by your gift of the Holy Spirit, grant to us wisdom that we might make not merely people with right knowledge, but true disciples who trust you with their shame and fear and sin and love, that all nations might be filled with those who love to worship you wholly, who together as one Trinitarian God, you live and reign over all you have made. Amen. #Collect #Prayer #Trinity #Evangelism

A Collect for Pentecost

God of spiritual flame, who looses both tongues and ears, who is no respecter of culture or language or class, and who promises your Spirit to abide in us, open our hearts to receive your power and conviction, that we might be bold both in proclaiming your truth and in breaking down barriers among your children and within our own hearts, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with the Father and Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen. #Collect #Prayer #Pentecost #HolySpirit
