A collect is a collective prayer prayed by the people of God for themselves and others. These are weekly prayers tuned to the Christian calendar in theme and tone. Would you join me in praying this prayer?
Stir up your power, O Lord, and with great might come among us; and, because we are sorely hindered by our sins, let your bountiful grace and mercy speedily help and deliver us; through Jesus Christ our Lord, to whom, with you and the Holy Spirit, be honor and glory, now and for ever. Amen.
