I am attempting my own version of the collects, and rework this week’s one as:
Almighty everliving God,
you are always more ready to hear than we to pray,
and to give more than we desire or deserve;
pour upon us the abundance of your mercy,
forgiving us those things
of which our conscience is afraid,
and giving us those things
for which our prayer dares not ask;
through Jesus Christ
who is alive with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God now and for ever.
It is shared by Roman Catholics, Anglicans, and others. Please send me any comments and constructive suggestions about my version of the collect, or include it in the comments section below.
• collect/opening prayer reflection for October 2 and the week following (BCP TEC USA and also the Roman Catholic Church)
• collect/opening prayer reflection for October 2 and the week following (NZPB)
Common Worship (CofE):
God, who in generous mercy sent the Holy Spirit
upon your Church in the burning fire of your love:
grant that your people may be fervent
in the fellowship of the gospel
that, always abiding in you,
they may be found steadfast in faith and active in service;
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.
