Collects and Prayers

Collect for the 14th Sunday in Ordinary Time


Unpretentious God,

you call us as we are;

and in our weakness you find strength.

Help us so to delight in who we are,

that we are set free

to dream of all that we could yet become;

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
