Series prayer:
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 you being our ruler and guide
we may so pass through things temporal
that we finally lose not the things eternal;
grant this, heavenly Father,
for the sake of our Jesus Christ our Lord.
Collect for the Fourth Sunday after Trinity
(Book of Common Prayer, modernised)
