The Collect

O LORD, who for our sake didst fast forty days and forty nights; Give us grace to use such abstinence, that, our flesh being subdued to the Spirit, we may ever obey thy godly motions in righteousness, and true holiness, to thy honour and glory, who livest and reignest with the Father and the Holy Ghost, one God, world without end. Amen.

The Order for Morning Prayer, Wednesday, June 23rd

Since the Lesson links do not always work properly for the Order for Morning Prayer at Linda Howell's site for the 1662 Book of Common Prayer, I have  posted the links here:
First Lesson:   Nehemiah 6:1-7:5
Second Lesson:  Acts 6
Collect of the Day:  Third Sunday After Trinity

A Prayer for the President of the United States, and all in Civil Authority. 

O LORD, our heavenly Father, the high and mighty Ruler of the universe, who dost from thy throne behold all the dwellers upon earth; Most heartily we beseech thee, with thy favour to behold and bless thy servant, Barack Obama, The President of the United States, and all others in authority; and so replenish them with the grace of thy Holy Spirit, that they may always incline to thy will, and walk in thy way. Endue them plenteously with heavenly gifts; grant them in health and prosperity long to live; and finally, after this life, to attain everlasting joy and felicity; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 


[From the 1789 Book of Common Prayer, Order for Morning Prayer.  I omitted the other American prayers at the end in the 1789 BCP because they are not in the 1662 BCP.  If you wish, you can read the KJV instead of the ESV by simply changing the version in the link to the Bible Gateway window.]

[Note:  If you hold down the Ctrl key and then click on the links it will open the windows on separate tabs in your browser and you can toggle back and forth easily from the Order for Morning Prayer and the psalter, lessons, and collect.  Hope this helps.  Also, if you don't like the prayers for the queen you can either delete these or use the American prayers for those in government.  However, since this country is not officially a "Christian" country, I don't believe the prayers for our leaders are necessary since they imply that our leaders are actually "Christian."  Most are not.]

  Glory be to the Father, and to the Son : and to the Holy Ghost;
    Answer. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be : world without end. Amen.
