The Sixteenth Sunday after Trinity
Prayer for the week
You have joined us to one another in relationships which are interdependent, so that what one does affects us all. Give us the earnest desire to do only those things which support and protect one another, so that we do what is right not in grudging obedience, but in the joyful freedom of love.
Canon Carol Wardman
Collect for the week
we beseech you mercifully to hear the prayers
of your people who call upon you;
and grant that they may both perceive and know
what things they ought to do,
and also may have grace and power
faithfully to fulfil them;
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.
