Trinity Sunday B

God the Holy Trinity

      Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts; the whole earth is full of his glory. Isa.6:3

      Almighty and everlasting God, you have given us your servants grace by the confession of a true faith to acknowledge the glory of the eternal Trinity, and by your divine power to worship you as One; we humbly pray that you would keep us steadfast in this faith and evermore defend us from all adversities; through Christ our Lord. Amen. BCP Trinity Sunday

      Let us pray [to the one God, Father, Son, and Spirit, that our lives may bear witness to our faith.]
      Father, you sent your Word to bring us truth and your Spirit to make us holy. Through them we come to know the mystery of your life. Help us to worship you, one God in three Persons, by proclaiming and living our faith in you. 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 blessed Trinity, in whom we know the Maker of all things, seen and unseen, the Saviour of all, both near and far: by your Spirit enable us so to worship your divine majesty, that with all the company of heaven we may magnify your glorious name, saying Holy, holy, holy, Glory to you, O Lord most high. Amen. APBA
