The Ninth Sunday after Trinity
Prayer for the week
God of Peace
You draw close to us,
breathing tranquility into the storms of our fears.
In your calming presence may we step forward courageously,
knowing that your grace and strength will sustain us in every situation,
so may our faith may not be for us alone,
but bring peace to others amidst the turbulence of the world. Amen.
Canon Carol Wardman
Collect for the week
who sent your Holy Spirit
to be the life and light of your Church:
open our hearts to the riches of your grace,
that we may bring forth the fruit of the Spirit
in love and joy and peace;
through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you
and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
