Grant to us, Lord, we pray,
the spirit to think and do always those things that are right,
that we, who cannot exist without you,
may by you be enabled to live according to your will;
through Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
Common Worship (CofE)
Let your merciful ears, O Lord,
be open to the prayers of your humble servants;
and that they may obtain their petitions
make them to ask such things as shall please you;
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.

Image: The New York sculptor, Tom Otterness, displayed a number of his works along upper Broadway near subway stops. A number of the pieces poked fun at the city’s drive to make money.
This piece, “Educating the Rich on the Globe” (1997) is well suited to be read along with today’s scripture selection from Luke, particularly verse 34: “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”
