Trinity Sunday

Episcopal Revised Common Lectionary - Year B

 

Presider:  Holy Trinity, One God, the whole world is filled with your glory:  Hear the prayers of your children as we say:  Ascribe due honor to God’s holy Name; worship the Most High in the beauty of holiness.

 

Litanist:  Abba! Father!  You have filled your Church with your Spirit and adopted us as your own children:  Inspire us to speak of what we know and testify to what we have seen.  Ascribe due honor to God’s holy Name;

worship the Most High in the beauty of holiness.

 

Jesus, the Son of Man who was lifted up to give the whole world eternal life:  Send the spirit of your compassion and understanding unto the leaders of our nation and all others in authority, that they may be led by the Spirit of God in the ways of justice and peace.  Ascribe due honor to God’s holy Name;

worship the Most High in the beauty of holiness.

 

Ever present and energizing Spirit, your presence sustains the world and brings all life into being:  Protect, comfort, and heal all who live with illness, threat, poverty or oppression throughout the world, that they may enjoy the goodness of your blessing.  Ascribe due honor to God’s holy Name;

worship the Most High in the beauty of holiness.

 

Glorious Trinity, One God, enable our community to be born from above, born of water and Spirit, that we may manifest your loving compassion and peace toward all.  Ascribe due honor to God’s holy Name;

worship the Most High in the beauty of holiness.

 

Your children, O God, have not received a spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but we have received a spirit of adoption, through which we ask for your aid: 

Hear our prayers for ___. 

Accept our praise and thanksgiving for ___. 

Embrace with your eternal life those who have died, especially ___. 

For you did not send the Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. 

Ascribe due honor to God’s holy Name;

worship the Most High in the beauty of holiness.

 

 

Presider:  Let our prayers and praises fill your temple, O Father, as you send forth your Spirit into the world to empower your children to do the deeds of your Son and to be signs of your divine presence, in the name of our Savior Jesus Christ who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.  Amen.
