Collect

 

God, who in generous mercy sent the Holy Spirit

 

  upon your Church in the burning fire of your love:

 

grant that your people may be fervent

 

in the fellowship of the gospel

 

that, always abiding in you,

 

they may be found steadfast in faith and active in service;

 

through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,

 

who is alive and reigns with you,

 

in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

 

one God, now and for ever.

 

 

 

Post Communion

 

Keep, O Lord, your Church,

 

 with your perpetual mercy; and, because without you our huma

 frailty cannot but fall,

 

keep us ever by your help from all things hurtful,

 

and lead us to all things profitable to our salvation;

 

through Jesus Christ our Lord.
