The Collect for Trinity Sunday

Almighty and everlasting God,
you have given us your servants grace,
by the confession of a true faith,
to acknowledge the glory of the eternal Trinity
and in the power of the divine majesty to worship the Unity:
keep us steadfast in this faith,
that we may evermore be defended from all adversities;
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.

A prayer for this ‘Refugee Week’
God in three persons who created human beings as one family
and in your Son Jesus experienced the pain
of being a refugee in Egypt,
through your Holy Spirit empower us all
to challenge the structures that cause human displacement
and the compassion to reach out to those in need.

A Collect for St Peter’s Church

Father God,
thank you for our church and its people.
Fill us with your Holy Spirit,
so that our church may flourish;
help us to see you in everyone we meet;
and fill our lives with your praise;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
