Collect for the 25th Sunday in Ordinary Time


Holy God,

in your economy

the last will be first and the first will be last;

help us to step aside,

and grant us such humility that we may recognise and welcome all your children

with open hands, warm hearts and generous minds,

with your hospitality and grace

Through Jesus Christ our Liberator,

who is alive and reigns with you,

in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and forever.






Gracious God

You have guided generations of faithful people who
have gone before us in St Luke’s-in-the City

We are embracing the challenges and opportunities as we explore our future ministry and mission here in the heart of our city.

We pray you will inspire us to be ‘as Christ in our community’.

Encourage, prepare and equip us for this journey as Christ leads.

Lift our hopes and deepen our faith in what you have in store for us.

Help us to listen well.

to deepen our love

strengthen our unity,

widen our vision.

Energise us in body, mind and spirit for the work before us.

As we journey on may we find in Christ’s hospitality, hope and food for the journey.

In Jesus name we pray.
