Collect for the Day

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.

Psalm 25:1-10

1 To you, O Lord, I lift up my soul; O my God, in you I trust : let me not be put to shame; let not my enemies triumph over me.

2 Let none who look to you be put to shame : but let the treacherous be shamed and frustrated.

3 Make me to know your ways, O Lord : and teach me your paths.

4 Lead me in your truth and teach me : for you are the God of my salvation; for you have I hoped all the day long.

5 Remember, Lord, your compassion and love : for they are from everlasting.

6 Remember not the sins of my youth or my transgressions : but think on me in your goodness, O Lord, according to your steadfast love.

7 Gracious and upright is the Lord : therefore shall he teach sinners in the way.

8 He will guide the humble in doing right : and teach his way to the lowly.

9 All the paths of the Lord are mercy and truth : to those who keep his covenant and his testimonies.

10 For your name’s sake, O Lord : be merciful to my sin, for it is great.

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.
