Mark 10:35-45 – James’ and John’s request
9 Because you have made the Lord your refuge : and the Most High your stronghold,
10 There shall no evil happen to you : neither shall any plague come near your tent.
11 For he shall give his angels charge over you : to keep you in all your ways.
12 They shall bear you in their hands : lest you dash your foot against a stone.
13 You shall tread upon the lion and adder : the young lion and the serpent you shall trample underfoot.
14 Because they have set their love upon me, therefore will I deliver them : I will lift them up, because they know my name.
15 They will call upon me and I will answer them : I am with them in trouble, I will deliver them and bring them to honour.
16 With long life will I satisfy them : and show them my salvation.
Glory to the Father, and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit: as it was in the beginning is now and shall be for ever. Amen.
Collect for the Day
Grant, we beseech you, merciful Lord, to your faithful people pardon and peace, that they may be cleansed from all their sins and serve you with a quiet mind; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
