The Collect

Almighty Lord and everlasting God, we beseech you to direct, sanctify and 
govern both our hearts and bodies in the ways of your laws and the works of 
your commandments; that through your most mighty protection, both here and 
ever, we may be preserved in body and soul; through our Lord and Saviour 
Jesus Christ, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever. Amen.

 

Post CommunionStrengthen for service, Lord, the hands that have taken holy things; may the 
ears which have heard your word be deaf to clamour and dispute; may the 
tongues which have sung your praise be free from deceit; may the eyes which 
have seen the tokens of your love shine with the light of hope; and may the 
bodies which have been fed with your body be refreshed with the fullness of 
your life; glory to you for ever. Amen

Lord Jesus Christ,
you taught us to love our neighbour,
and to care for those in need
as if we were caring for you.
In this time of anxiety, give us strength
to comfort the fearful, to tend the sick,
and to assure the isolated
of our love, and your love,
for your name’s sake. Amen.
