COLLECT FOR SUNDAY (7/31)

Let your continual mercy, O Lord, cleanse and defend your Church;  and, because it cannot continue in safety without your help, protect and govern it always by your goodness;  through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.  Amen.
(BCP)

PRAYER FOR PEACE

Eternal God, in whose perfect kingdom no sword is drawn but the sword of righteousness, no strength known but the strength of love:  So mightily spread abroad your Spirit, that all peoples may be gathered under the banner of the Prince of Peace, as children of one Father, to whom be dominion and glory, now and for ever.  Amen.
(BCP – p. 815)
