Collects and Prayers
Collect for THE REIGN OF CHRIST
God of majesty and glory,
you reign over all.
In the midst of the powers and principalities of this world,
give us clarity to swear our allegiance to the only true sovereign,
to care for the least of our sisters and brothers
and to dedicate our lives to the coming of your kingdom.
Through Jesus Christ our Liberator,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever. Amen.
ST LUKE'S PARISH PRAYER
O Living and Life-Giving God,
your blessed witness Luke the Evangelist
has inspired generations of your faithful people
to work for the gospel in this part of our city.
So guide us by your Spirit:
give us a thirst for your truth,
a passion for your justice,
a strength in our witness,
and a firm hope in the future you open before us;
that we may celebrate with joy
the saving death and resurrection of Jesus Christ,
your Son, our Lord.
Lord of compassion and power,
be with those affected by the Corona Virus as so many suffer
while others’ lives are disrupted and filled with uncertainty.
Give your grace and strength to all who minister
to their needs of body, mind and spirit.
Heal and help those who are traumatised by what is happening.
Give peace to the dying.
Comfort and support the bereaved, broken and confused,
and to all who are working to bring relief,
give strength and resilience
to do their work well;
In the name of Jesus Christ we pray. Amen
