Tiberius Denarius

Denarius from around the time of Jesus with the face of Caesar Tiberius

Let us pray (in silence) [that God may continue to guide and gather us]

pause

Almighty and everlasting God,
in Christ you have revealed your glory among the nations:
Preserve the works of your mercy,
that your Church throughout the world
may persevere with steadfast faith
in the confession of your Name;
through Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.
Amen.

This is from TEC’s Book of Common Prayer (p.235) – an ancient, shared prayer – the commentary is here.

Roman Catholics use a collect with an ancient, shared history.

Let us pray (in silence) [that the God who entices us may also enable us to be transformed]

pause

Almighty and everliving God,
conform our wills freely to yours,
and direct our hearts
to share your glory by our undivided service;
through Jesus Christ
who is alive with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
Amen.
