Collects and Prayers

Collect for the 26th Sunday in Ordinary Time


God of all authority,

enable us to hear your call and do what you ask of us.

Forgive us for judging others,

help us to embrace the outcast and the downtrodden.

Transform our lives so that everything we do may proclaim your generous love.

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.



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
