Last Sunday after Pentecost

Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the living God,
You alone heal the wounds of our sins,
and you show constant goodness in the Land of the Living;
Grant that we may serve you faithfully with a quiet mind in this world,
and going forth in your love,
may praise and bless you forever in the world to come;
through your mercy, O our God,
you are blessed,
and live and govern all things,
now and forever.
Amen.

Pentecost 25

O Lord Jesus Christ,
you are the Redeemer of all who put their trust in you.
Free your people from the bonds of their sins,
fill their hearts and minds with true wisdom,
and let your peace and heavenly blessing always be with them;
through your mercy, O our God,
you are blessed,
and live and govern all things,
now and forever.
Amen.

For Harvest or Thanksgiving Day

Almighty God, most merciful Father,
you open your hand and satisfy the desire of every living thing.
We give you most humble and hearty thanks
that you have crowned the fields with your blessing,
and have permitted us once more
to gather in the fruits of the earth.
Bless and protect the living seed of your Word sown in our hearts,
that in the abundant fruits of righteousness
we may always present to you an acceptable thank-offering;
through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one true God, now and forever. Amen.

The New Book of Collects in Two Parts

The New Book of Collects in Two Parts.png

A Book of Collects in Two Parts was a collection of short prayers compiled by John Wallace Suter (Pater) and his son, John Wallace Suter, Jr. (Filius). Since the book was published in 1919, it is now in the public domain.

John Wallace Suter was a priest and liturgist in the American Episcopal Church, and was the custodian of the American Standard Book of Common Prayer. At his death in 1942, his son, John Wallace Suter, Jr. succeeded him as custodian of the Standard Book of Common Prayer.

The original text was taken from Project Canterbury, a free, online library of Anglican and Episcopalian literature, and it may be read directly on Project Canterbury by clicking on this link:  http://anglicanhistory.org/liturgy/suter_collects1919.html

The first part is a collection of short prayers newly composed by the Suters. The second part is a collection of short prayers from the history of the ancient Christian church.
