The Fourth Sunday after Trinity
Prayer for the week
In all the difficulties we encounter, the joys we experience, or the pains we bear,
show us how we can learn and grow through every situation.
We pray that we may not lose heart,
nor forget the treasures we can find even in the hardest times.
For this world that we pass through is the one you love;
and in your love, nothing is lost or wasted.
Canon Carol Wardman
Collect for the week
O God, the protector of all who trust in you,
without whom nothing is strong, nothing is holy:
increase and multiply upon us your mercy;
that with you as our ruler and guide
we may so pass through things temporal
that we finally lose not the things eternal;
grant this, heavenly Father,
for our Lord Jesus Christ’s sake,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
