Skipped Collects-2013

Dear fellow centurions,

Now that we have moved into the Pre-Lenten season, we have had to skip over a few Collects. In order to give these too easily neglected Collects some air-time and air-space, I felt it appropriate to post them now so that you might use them this week. The one for the Third Sunday was already put out accidently (a little faux pas on my part). So here are the 4th-6th. Here is a thought: use them this week to pray for your specific congregation. Along with the appointed one, piles these into your prayer-mix but pray them pointedly for your flock.

The Fourth Sunday after the Epiphany.
The Collect.
O GOD, who knowest us to be set in the midst of so many and great dangers, that by reason of the frailty of our nature we cannot always stand upright; Grant to us such strength and protection, as may support us in all dangers, and carry us through all temptations; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Fifth Sunday after the Epiphany.
The Collect.
O LORD, we beseech thee to keep thy Church and household continually in thy true religion; that they who do lean only upon the hope of thy heavenly grace may evermore be defended by thy mighty power; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
{My personal favorite}

The Sixth Sunday after the Epiphany.
The Collect.
O GOD, whose blessed Son was manifested that he might destroy the works of the devil, and make us the sons 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. Amen.
Dominus Vobiscum

Primus Pilus II
