Twentieth Sunday in Ordinary Time
From The Liturgy of the Hours:
God our Father, may we love you in all things and above all things and reach the joy you have prepared for us beyond all our imagining. We ask 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.
The Collect for the Eighth Sunday after Trinity from The Book of Common Prayer:
O GOD, WHOSE NEVER FAILING PROVIDENCE ORDERETH ALL THINGS BOTH IN HEAVEN AND EARTH; WE HUMBLY BESEECH THEE TO PUT AWAY FROM US ALL HURTFUL THINGS, AND TO GIVE US THOSE THINGS WHICH ARE PROFITABLE FOR US; THROUGH JESUS CHRIST OUR LORD. AMEN.
