Prayer for the Week

Let your continual mercy, O Lord, cleanse and defend your Church; and, because it cannot continue in safety without your help, protect and govern it always by your goodness; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

    Very nice collect. May I ask it’s source?

    Always, our prayers are from the Book of Common Prayer as found in the Revised Common Lectionary — right here:

  • Ron Newberry

    Book of Common Prayer, 1979. See Collects, Contemporary, proper 13.

    Thanks. My church body uses another lectionary with different propers. This is superior to the appointed collect we had today, IMO.
