TRINITY



Centering


Opening Prayer
O blessed Trinity,
in whom we know the Maker of all things seen and unseen,
the Savior of all both near and far:
By your Spirit enable us so to worship your divine majesty,
that with all the company of heaven
we may magnify your glorious name, saying:
Holy, holy, holy.
Glory to you, O God most high.
Amen.


Collect For Trinity
Almighty God, you have revealed to your Church your eternal Mystery. Being of glorious majesty and perfect love as one God in. Blessed and Holy Trinity: Give us grace to continue steadfast in the confession of this faith, and constant in our worship of you: O Holy, Almighty, and Immortal One, for you live and reign, one God now and forever. Amen.

Prayer For the Day
O God, Love, Loved, and Loving
you are the great Mystery
beyond human comprehension
yet source of our imagination.
How can we speak of when our words
and utterly insufficient?
As our utterances might name
something about you that is true
they always carry meanings
that are less than helpful
in our prayers
in our sharing
in our worship
in our serving
in our teaching
in our learning
and, also, in our bias and discrimination.
So let us not attempt to understand
the Mystery of You
but let us embrace the things of You
we can be sure of.
There is Trinity in your Word.
to "do justice, love kindness, and
walk humbly with You"
O God.
A three-path ordering of human life
that your will be fulfilled
here and now
as it will be forever.
Blessed are You
and blessed is your Kin-Dom.

For Justice
Grant us, Lord God, a vision of your world as your love would have it: a world where the weak are protected, and none go hungry or poor a world where the riches of creation are shared, and everyone can enjoy them; a world where different races and cultures live in harmony and mutual respect a world where peace is built with justice, and justice is guided by love. Give us the inspiration and courage to build it, in your presence and perfecting love. Amen.

---------

Almighty God, guide the nations of the world into the way of justice and truth,and establish among them that peace which is the fruit of righteousness,that they may become the Commonwealth of your Kin-dom, here on earth as it is in heaven. Amen.

---------

Almighty God, you have given all peoples one common origin, and your will is to gather them as one family in yourself. Fill the hearts of all with the fire of your love and the desire to ensure justice for all our sisters and brothers. By sharing the good things you give us, may we secure justice and equality for every human being, and a human society built on love and peace, in your most Blessed name. Amen.

For Peace
O God, who would fold both heaven and earth in a single peace: Let the design of your great love lighten upon the waste of our wraths and sorrows: and give peace to your Church, peace among nations, peace in our dwellings, and peace in our hearts: through your Beloved and Anointed One. Amen

---------

Eternal Lord, whose kingdom knows only the sword of righteousness and justice, and where your only power is love, send forth your spirit so that all the peoples of the earth will join together as children of one Father, for yours alone is the kingdom, the power and the glory, for ever and ever. Amen.

Prayer For Humble Following
We do not presume to come to your table, merciful Lord, trusting in our own goodness, but in your all-embracing love and mercy. We are not worthy even to gather up the crumbs under your table, but it is your nature always to have mercy. So feed us with the body and blood of Jesus Christ, your Son, that we may forever live in him and he in us. Amen.

---------

As You continue to bless me, O God, allow pride to fall by the wayside, that all worldly gains and desires mean nothing to me.
May You be what I want that my want for others is nothing less that your compassion and mercy.
Humbly I come before You, for You are the great I AM, the Alpha and the Omega, the truth and life, the beginning and the end.
Before you I will bow, for You alone deserve all praise and glory. In your Most Blessed and Loving Name. Amen.

---------

Loving God, who humbled yourself in the Beloved and Anointed One: we ask for your help to walk humbly with our brothers and sisters. It is all too easy for us to fall prey to our brokenness and to walk in arrogance, but we know that pride causes division and we desire peace. O God, help us to humble ourselves in order that we do not let the lies of racism, misogyny, xenophobia, and nationalism overcome us. Rather, help us to count ourselves as equals with one another in both sacred worth and deserving of honor. It is then that we will stop attempting to ascend upon the exploitation of others, and we can love all others for the unique person You made them to be. Help us to value one another in this humble spirit so that we may live to the fullest. Blessed are you and blessed is your Kin-Dom, forevermore.
