Prayers

Pentecost Sunday

O God, who on the day of Pentecost
enlightened the hearts of your people
by the fire of the Holy Spirit:
give us wisdom and understanding,
and lead us into all truth,
that your Church may be kept in the unity of the Spirit
and the bond of peace;
through Jesus Christ, our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you,
in the unity of the same Spirit,
one God, world without end. Amen.

10th Mon Columba of Iona, Abbot, 597
O God,
who called your servant Columba
from among the princes of Ireland
to be a herald and evangelist of your kingdom:
grant that your Church, remembering his faith and courage,
may so proclaim the gospel,
that people everywhere
will come to know your Son as their Saviour,
and serve him as their king;
who lives and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, world without end. Amen.

11th Tue Barnabas, Apostle
Lord God Almighty,
who filled your holy apostle Barnabas
with faith and the Holy Spirit,
and set him apart to proclaim your word to the nations:
grant us, like him, the same gifts;
that we may encourage the faint-hearted,
remember the poor,
and bring others to know you,
the living God;
for the sake of Jesus Christ, our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, world without end. Amen.

16th Sun Trinity Sunday
Almighty and Everlasting God,
you have given us grace in the profession of true faith
to recognise the glory of the eternal Trinity:
keep us steadfast in this faith
and bring us to see you in your perfect and eternal unity;
through Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, world without end. Amen.
