Collects



        A Collect for Peace
        O God, the author of peace and lover of
        concord, to know you is eternal life and to
        serve you is perfect freedom: Defend us,
        you humble servants, in all assaults of our
        enemies; that we, surely trusting in your de-
        fense, may not fear the power of any adver-
        saries; through the might of Jesus Christ our
        Lord. Amen.

        A Collect for Grace

        Lord God, almighty and everlasting Father,
        you have brought us in safety to this new
        day: Preserve us with your mighty power,
        that we may not fall into sin, nor be over-
        come by adversity; and in all we do, direct
        us to the fulfilling of your purpose; through
        Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.


        A Collect for Guidance
        Heavenly Father, in you we live and move
        and have our being: We humbly pray you
        so to guide and govern us by your Holy
        Spirit, that in all the cares and occupations
        of our life we may not forget you, but may
        remember that we are ever walking in your
        sight; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.


        A Collect for Mission
        Lord Jesus Christ, you stretched out your
        arms of love on the hard wood of the cross
        that everyone might come within the reach
        of your saving embrace:  So clothe us in
        your Spirit that we, reaching forth our hands
        in love, may bring those who do not know
        you to the knowledge and love of you; for
        the honor of your Name. Amen.
