Bible Sunday or the last Sunday after Trinity
Prayer for the week
God, our Comfort and Strength;
Carry us, we pray, through the difficult days that lie ahead of us.
Give wisdom and compassion to our decision-makers, that we may encourage and care for one another with gentleness and patience, and each play our part in restoring health and overcoming our troubles; for you know our deepest anxieties, and in the confidence of your everlasting love we are never alone. Amen.
Canon Carol Wardman
Collect for the week
who caused all holy scriptures
to be written for our learning:
help us so to hear them,
to read, mark, learn and inwardly digest them
that, through patience and the comfort of your holy word,
we may embrace and for ever hold fast
the hope of everlasting life,
which you have given us in our Saviour Jesus Christ,
who is alive and reigns with you
and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
