The Collect for the Twentieth Sunday after Trinity

God the giver of life,
whose Holy Spirit wells up within your Church:
by the Spirit’s gifts equip us to live the gospel of Christ and make us eager to do your will,
that we may share wit the whole creation
the joys of eternal life;
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 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.

A Prayer for the Victims of Modern Slavery

Lord of the lost,
we pray for all who are victims of modern day slavery:
people lured from their homes and families;
people deceived while trying to find a better life;
people who are desperate to trust anyone.
Help us to be more vigilant and watchful;
to be aware of those who may need our help,
and those who do not know where help may lie.
