Prayers

Twentyfirst Sunday after Pentecost

O Lord, since without you we cannot please you:
let the work of your mercy in all things guide our hearts;
through Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, world without end. Amen.

18 Saint Luke, Evangelist
Almighty God,
who inspired your servant Luke the physician
to set forth in the Gospel the love and healing power of your Son:
graciously continue in your Church
this love and power to heal,
to the praise and glory of your Name;
through Jesus Christ, our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, world without end. Amen.
