Sunday: Ordinary 22A, Proper 17A

Finding favour with God

      If you want to become a disciple of Jesus, deny yourself, take up your cross and follow him. Matthew 16:24-25
      Almighty and everlasting God, you are always more ready to hear than we to pray, and constantly give more than either we desire or deserve: pour down on us the abundance of your mercy, forgiving us those things of which our conscience is afraid, and giving us those good things which we are not worthy to ask, except through the merits and mediation of Jesus Christ, your Son our Lord. Amen. BCP. Trinity 12
      O God, whose Son has shown the way of the cross to be the way of life: transform and renew our minds that we may not be conformed to this world, but may offer ourselves wholly to you as a living sacrifice through Jesus Christ our Saviour; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen. APBA
