Prayers and Readings

TWENTY-FIRST SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME

August 26, 2012

 

Collect

O God, who cause the minds of the faithful

to unite in a single purpose,

grant your people to love what you command

and to desire what you promise,

that, amid the uncertainties of this world,

our hearts may be fixed on that place

where true gladness is found.

Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,

who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

one God, for ever and ever.

 

Prayer over the Gifts

O Lord, who gained for yourself a people by adoption

through the one sacrifice offered once for all,

bestow graciously on us, we pray,

the gifts of unity and peace in your Church.

Through Christ our Lord.

 

Prayer after Communion

Complete within us, O Lord, we pray,

the healing work of your mercy

and graciously perfect and sustain us,

so that in all things we may please you.

Through Christ our Lord.
