The Seventeenth Sunday after Trinity
Prayer for the week
God of Wisdom;
Our curiosity and thirst for knowledge are amongst your most cherished gifts to us.
To rest in your peace is not to give up all our exploration and striving,
but to use them in the service of peace and healing,
knowing that our fulfilment is found in your eternal love,
made manifest in Jesus Christ,
your perfect image. Amen.
Canon Carol Wardman
Collect for the week
you have made us for yourself,
and our hearts are restless
till they find their rest in you:
teach us to offer ourselves to your service,
that here we may have your peace,
and in the world to come
may see you face to face;
through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you
and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
