The Eleventh Sunday after Trinity
Prayer for the week
In your perfect creation you gave us the freedom to make many choices;
so guard us from decisions which harm ourselves or others.
May those whose privilege affords greater freedom be always mindful of the common good,
so that all may enjoy the generosity of your provision;
and by our actions may we not deny good things of mind, body or spirit to others.
Canon Carol Wardman
Collect for the week
you declare your almighty power
most chiefly in showing mercy and pity:
mercifully grant to us such a measure of your grace,
that we, running the way of your commandments,
may receive your gracious promises,
and be made partakers of your heavenly treasure;
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.
