 O God, the protector of all who trust in you,

without whom nothing is strong, nothing  is holy:

increase and multiply upon us your mercy;

that with you as our ruler and guide

we may so pass through things temporal

that we lose not our hold on things eternal;

grant this, heavenly Father,

for our Lord Jesus Christ’s sake,

who is alive and reigns with you,

in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and for ever.   Amen.

Post Communion

 Eternal God,

comfort of the afflicted and healer of the broken,

you have fed us at the table of life and hope;

teach us the ways of gentleness and peace,

that all the world may acknowledge

the kingdom of your Son Jesus Christ our Lord.   Amen.
