pentecost 10

O God, the protector of all who trust in you,
without you nothing is strong, nothing is holy.
Increase and mulitply upon us your mercy,
that with you as our ruler and guide,
we may so pass through things temporal,
that we lose not the things eternal;
through Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns
with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever and ever.
