The Collect for today - Trinity Sunday:

Almighty and everlasting God, you have given us grace, by the confession of a true faith, to bear witness to the glory of the eternal Trinity and to worship you as the one God.  We humbly pray that you will keep us firm in the confession of this faith and always defend us when we are in trouble, for you live and reign forever, the one true God.  Amen.
