The First Sunday after Trinity
Prayer for the week
The frailty of our mortal nature has become real to us this year with clarity and sorrow.
Grant us wisdom as we rebuild our lives,
that we may learn lessons of gentleness and care,
and better reflect your love for all your people,
and for the beautiful and fragile world around us.
Canon Carol Wardman
Collect for the week
the strength of all those who put their trust in you,
mercifully accept our prayers
and, because through the weakness of our mortal nature
we can do no good thing without you,
grant us the help of your grace,
that in the keeping of your commandments
we may please you both in will and deed;
through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
