THE COLLECT FOR TRINITY SUNDAY
Almighty and everlasting God, you have given us your servants grace, by the confession of a true faith, to acknowledge the glory of the eternal Trinity and in the power of the divine majesty to worship the Unity: keep us steadfast in this faith, that we may evermore be defended from all adversities; 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.
THE COLLECT FOR TRINITY I
O God, the strength of all those who put their trust in you, mercifully accept our prayers and, because through the weakness of our mortal nature we can do no good thing without you, grant us the help of your grace, that in the keeping of your commandments we may please you both in will and deed; 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.
THE COLLECT FOR TRINITY II
Lord, you have taught us that all our doings without love are nothing worth: send your Holy Spirit and pour into our hearts that most excellent gift of love, the true bond of peace and of all virtues, without which whoever lives is counted dead before you. Grant this for your only son Jesus Christ’s sake, who is alive and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy spirit, one God, now and for ever.
THE COLLECT FOR TRINITY III
Almighty God, you have broken the tyranny of sin and have sent the Spirit of your Son into our hearts whereby we call you Father: give us grace to dedicate our freedom to your service, that we and all creation may be brought to the glorious liberty of the children of God; 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.
The St Andrew’s Bible Study takes the form of Lectio Divina (meaning divine reading). This is a traditional Benedictine practice of scriptural reading, meditation and prayer, intended to promote communion with God and to increase the knowledge of his Word. It does not treat scripture as texts to be studied but as the living word.
