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.

    Always, our prayers are from the Book of Common Prayer as found in the Revised Common Lectionary — right here: http://www.lectionarypage.net

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