Nineteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time
From the Office of Morning Prayer from The Liturgy of the Hours:
Almighty and ever living God, your Spirit made us your children, confident to call you Father. Increase your Spirit within us and bring us to your inheritance. Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
Collect for the Seventh Sunday after Trinity from The Book of Common Prayer:
LORD OF ALL POWER AND MIGHT, WHO ART THE AUTHOR AND GIVER OF ALL GOOD THINGS; GRAFT IN OUR HEARTS THE LOVE OF THY NAME, INCREASE IN US TRUE RELIGION, NOURISH US WITH ALL GOODNESS, AND OF THY GREAT MERCY KEEP US IN THE SAME; THROUGH JESUS CHRIST OUR LORD. AMEN.
