The Collect for the Third Sunday before Lent

Almighty God,
who alone can bring order
to the unruly wills and passions of sinful humanity:
give your people grace
so to love what you command
and to desire what you promise,
that, among the many changes of this world,
our hearts may surely there be fixed
where true joys are to be found;
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.

Gracious God,
teacher of wisdom,

A Collect for St Peter’s Church

Father God,
thank you for our church and its people.
Fill us with your Holy Spirit,

through Jesus Christ our Lord.
