14th Sunday After Trinity -Proper 20

 Collect: Almighty God, whose only Son has opened for us a new and living way into your presence: give us pure hearts and steadfast wills to worship you in spirit and in truth; 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

Post Communion Prayer:  Lord God, the source of truth and love, keep us faithful to the apostles’ teaching and fellowship, united in prayer and the breaking of bread, and one in joy and simplicity of heart, in Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Intercessions

As we continue to journey through this period of national mourning for Her late Majesty the Queen, we pray for all who have been touched by her death and that all who will watch the funeral will hear the message of hope in Jesus, who is the Resurrection and the Life. We also pray for those for whom the cost of living is an immense worry. We pray for all in Langley, and the wider community of Slough whose lives are affected by knife crime, domestic abuse and anti-social behaviour, that the deep shalom of God will permeate our streets, homes and communities.
