Pentecost 16

O Lord,
remember that we are dust,
and see the sorrow for sin in our hearts.
In the weakness of our flesh we can only fall.
By your mighty power lift us up;
through Jesus Christ, your Son, our Lord.
Amen.

Prayer for the Twelfth Sunday after Pentecost

O merciful God,
you justified the tax collector
who stood at a distance,
and while beating his breast,
confessed his sins to you.
As we acknowledge our unworthiness,
and ask for your mercy,
forgive all our sins;
through your mercy,
and for the sake of Jesus Christ,
your Son, our Savior.
Amen.

St. Bartholomew

On August 24 the Christian Church remembers St. Bartholomew. The Mozarabic prayer refers to Jesus’ great commission to all his disciples at the end of the Gospel of Mark (Mark 16:16-18). 

St. Bartholomew by El Greco

Christ,
the Power of God,
and the Wisdom of God,
you gave your holy apostle
Saint Bartholomew
power to tread on serpents and scorpions.
Strengthen us by your grace,
that in your might
we may vanquish and overcome
all our spiritual enemies,
and with pure hearts serve you,
with the Father and the Holy Spirit,
we worship and glorify you,
one God, now and forever.
Amen.

Never Let Us Wander into Darkness

File:Solar eclipse 1999 4.jpgJesus our Master,
walk with us on the road
as we yearn to reach the heavenly country,
so that following your light,
we may stay on the way of righteousness
and never wander in the horrible darkness of this world’s night
while you, the way, the truth, and the life,
are shining within us.

Prayer for the Ninth Sunday after Pentecost

O God,
your only Son hung on the cross for us,
and there he paid the price of our redemption with his blood,
that we, through his death, might receive adoption as your children.
Give us grace to call you Father
in true faith;
through your Son,
Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen.
