THE COLLECT FOR EASTER DAY
Lord of all life and power, who through the mighty resurrection of your Son overcame the old order of sin and death to make all things new in him: grant that we, being dead to sin and alive to you in Jesus Christ, may reign with him in glory; to whom with you and the Holy Spirit be praise and honour, glory and might, now and in all eternity.
THE COLLECT FOR SECOND SUNDAY OF EASTER
Almighty Father, you have given your only Son to die for our sins and to rise again for our justification: grant us so to put away the leaven of malice and wickedness that we may always serve you in pureness of living and truth; through the merits of your Son Jesus Christ 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 THIRD SUNDAY OF EASTER
Almighty Father, who in your great mercy gladdened the disciples with the sight of the risen Lord: give us such knowledge of his presence with us, that we may be strengthened and sustained by his risen life and serve you continually in righteousness and truth; 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 FOURTH SUNDAY OF EASTER
Almighty God, whose Son Jesus Christ is the resurrection and the life: raise us, who trust in him, from the death of sin to the life of righteousness, that we may seek those things which are above, where he 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.
