Sunday between 14 and 20 August

Almighty God,

you have given your only Son

to be for us both a sacrifice for sin

and also an example for godly life:

give us grace that we may always thankfully receive

the benefits of his sacrifice,

and also daily endeavour

to follow the blessed steps of his most holy life;

through the same Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.


Sunday between 7 and 13 August

Grant to us, Lord, we beseech you,

the spirit to think and do always such things as are right,

that we, who cannot do anything that is good without you,

may by you be enabled to live according to your will;

through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.


Sunday between 31 July and 6 August

Almighty God,

whose beloved Son for our sake

willingly endured the agony and shame of the cross:

give us courage and patience

to take up our cross daily and follow him;

who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and forever. Amen.


Sunday between 24 and 30 July

O God, the protector of all things that trust in you,

without whom nothing is strong, nothing is holy:

increase and multiply upon us your mercy,

that, among the changes and chances of this world,

our hearts may surely there be fixed

where true joys are to be found;

through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
