The King of the Kingdom

      Of Jesus many said, "What is this wisdom that has been given to him? What deeds of power are being done by his hands!" Mk.6:2

      Let us pray [for forgiveness through the grace of Jesus Christ ]
      Father, through the obedience of Jesus, your Servant and your Son, you raised a fallen world. Free us from sin and bring us the joy that last for ever. We ask 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

      Lord, give your people grace to withstand the temptations of the world, the flesh, and the devil, and with pure hearts and minds to follow you the only God; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. BCP Trinity 18

      O Lord our God, you are always more ready to bestow your good gifts upon us than we are to seek them; and more willing to give than we desire or deserve: in our every need, grant us the first and best of all your gifts, the Spirit who makes us your children. We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen. APBA
