Collect for St. Hugh of Lincoln
O holy God, who didst endow thy
servant and bishop Hugh of Lincoln with wise and cheerful boldness, and
taught him to commend the discipline of holy life to kings and princes:
Grant that we also, rejoicing in the Good News of thy mercy, and fearing
nothing but the loss of thee, may be bold to speak the truth in love,
in the name of Jesus Christ our Redeemer; who liveth and reigneth with
thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
Collect for the Week of the Sunday closest to November 9 (Proper 27)
O God, whose blessed Son was manifested that he might
destroy the works of the devil and make us children of
God and heirs of eternal life: Grant us, we beseech thee, that,
having this hope, we may purify ourselves even as he is pure;
that, when he shall appear again with power and great glory,
we may be made like unto him in his eternal and glorious
kingdom; where with thee, O Father, and thee, O Holy Ghost,
he liveth and reigneth ever, one God, world without end.

give thee glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord.
A Prayer for Mission

love thee and serve thee in peace; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Keep watch, dear Lord, with those who work, or watch, or
weep this night, and give thine angels charge over those who
sleep. Tend the sick, Lord Christ; give rest to the weary, bless
the dying, soothe the suffering, pity the afflicted, shield the joyous;
and all for thy love's sake. Amen.
O God, who dost manifest in thy servants the signs of thy
presence: Send forth upon us the Spirit of love, that in
companionship with one another thine abounding grace may
increase among us; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
