The Third Sunday after Trinity
Prayer for the week
God our Saviour;
We give thanks for freedom to express our beliefs, choose our path in life and participate in our communities.
Open our eyes and hearts to the plight of all who do not, through law or circumstances, enjoy such liberty; but suffer persecution, abuse and oppression.
Strengthen all efforts to overcome these persistent evils, that the whole human race may come to know and experience your loving care and perfect will.
Canon Carol Wardman
Collect for the week
you have broken the tyranny of sin
and have sent the Spirit of your Son into our hearts
whereby we call you Father:
give us grace to dedicate our freedom to your service,
that we and all creation may be brought
to the glorious liberty of the children of God;
through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you
and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
