Trinity Sunday, 1st after Pentecost C

God the Holy Trinity

      Does not wisdom call, and does not understanding raise her voice? 'The Lord created me at the beginning of his work, the first of his acts of long ago.' Proverbs 8:1,22
      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
      Father, we praise you, that through your Word and Holy Spirit you created all things; you reveal your salvation in all the world through Jesus Christ, the Word made flesh; through your Holy Spirt you give us a share in your life and love: fill us with the vision of your glory, that we may always serve and praise you, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, one God for ever and ever. Amen. APBA

      We gather in the name of the Maker;
