The Eighth Sunday after Trinity
Prayer for the week
God of Wisdom and Power:
In your self-giving love you never force obedience,
but what you ask of us is all that brings life and health.
Give us such faith and trust that we obey your commandments in freedom and joy,
and know your presence with us as both comfort and protection.
Through Jesus Christ who is with us always: Amen.
Canon Carol Wardman
Collect for the week
Almighty Lord and everlasting God,
we beseech you to direct, sanctify and govern us
in the ways of your laws
and the works of your commandments;
that through your most mighty protection, both here and ever,
we may be preserved in body and soul;
through our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
