Last Sunday after Trinity - Bible Sunday

COLLECT FOR TODAY (A collect is a prayer that “collects together” and reflects the general theme of the day)

Blessed Lord,

who caused all holy Scriptures to be written for our learning:

help us so to hear them,

to read, mark, learn and inwardly digest them

that, through patience, and the comfort of your holy word,

we may embrace and for ever hold fast

the hope of everlasting life,

which you have given us in our Saviour Jesus Christ,

who is alive and reigns with you,

in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and for ever.


We pray for our brothers and sisters in the church in the Diocese of Stavanger, Norway, the Anglican Church in Wales and the Diocese of Carlisle.
