Collect One

O Lord,
who never failest to help and govern them
whom thou dost bring up in thy steadfast fear and love;
Keep us, we beseech thee,
under the protection of thy good providence,
and make us to have a perpetual fear and love of thy holy Name;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Collect Two

Lord, you have taught us
that all our doings without love are nothing worth:
Send your Holy Spirit

without which whoever lives is counted dead before you.
Grant this for your only Son Jesus Christ’s sake.
