Twenty First Sunday in Ordinary Time
From The Liturgy of the Hours:
Father, help us to seek the values that will bring us lasting joy in this changing world. In our desire for what you promise make us one in mind and heart. 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 Ninth Sunday after Trinity from The Book of Common Prayer:
GRANT TO US, LORD, WE BESEECH THEE, THE SPIRIT TO THINK AND DO ALWAYS SUCH THINGS AS ARE RIGHT; THAT WE, WHO CANNOT DO ANY THING THAT IS GOOD WITHOUT THEE, MAY BY THEE BE ENABLED TO LIVE ACCORDING TO THY WILL; THROUGH JESUS CHRIST OUR LORD. AMEN.
