Sunday: Ordinary 12B, Proper 7B

The love of God supports us

      Who this is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him? Mk.4:41

      Lord God, the unfailing helper and guide of those whom you bring up in your steadfast fear and love, keep us, we pay, under the protection of your good providence, and give us a continual reverence and love for your holy name; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. BCP Trinity 2

      Let us pray [that we may grow in the love of God.]
      Father, guide and protector of your people, grant us an unfailing respect for your name, and keep us always in your love. Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen. AAPB

      O God our defender, storms rage about us and cause us to be afraid: rescue your people from despair, deliver you sons and daughters from fear, and preserve us all from unbelief; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen. APBA
