Collect for 27th September 2020 – 16th Sunday after Trinity

O Lord, we beseech you mercifully to hear the prayers of your people who call upon you;

and grant that they may both perceive and know what things they ought to do,

and also may have grace and power faithfully to fulfil them;

through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,

who is alive and reigns with you,

in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.



 Live simply.  Love generously.  Care deeply.  Speak kindly.  Leave the rest to God.

Exercise daily—walk with the Lord!

The church is a hospital for sinners, not a rest home for saints.
