The Collect for the Seventeenth Sunday after Trinity

Eternal God,
you crown the year with your goodness
and you give us the fruits of the earth in their season:
grant that we may use them to your glory,
for the relief of those in need and for our own well-being;
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.

Father God,
thank you for our church and its people.

A prayer from the Episcopal Church in the Philippines
Lord, thank you for the wonder and beauty of creation;
for so many blessings to sustain us in body, mind and soul.
Bless those whose lives are hard and who have little,
So they may share in the abundance of your provision.
