Collect for 4th Sunday after Trinity
by the obedience of Jesus
you brought salvation to our wayward world:
draw us into harmony with your will,
that we may find all things restored in him,
our Saviour Jesus Christ. AMEN
Prayer for Refugee Week
No one is a stranger to you
and no one is ever far from your loving care.
Watch over those who are separated
from their loved ones and homeland,
all who fear persecution and have to flee
to search for peace and security.
May they be met with compassion and welcome, wherever they arrive.
This we pray in the name of Him who often found nowhere to lay his head,
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
