The Collect for today - Fourth Sunday after Trinity:

Almighty God, the protector of all who believe in you and without whom nothing is strong, nothing is holy: increase and multiply upon us your mercy, that with you as our ruler and guide, we may pass through the things of this age in such a way that we do not finally lose the things of the age to come. Grant this, heavenly Father, for our Lord Jesus Christ’s sake.  Amen.

Please pray for...
