Prayer for the Eighth Sunday after Pentecost

O Lord Jesus Christ,
the rest of the angels and of all the saints,
deliver your people from all sin,
and give us rest from every burden.
As we join with saints and angels to bless you,
we will in all things be blessed by you;
through your mercy, O our God,
you are blessed,
and live and govern all things,
now and forever.
Amen.
