Monday 6th July



Dearly beloved brethren, the scripture moveth us in sundry places to acknowledge and confess our manifold sins and wickedness; and that we should not dissemble nor cloke them before the face of Almighty God our heavenly Father; but confess them with an humble, lowly, penitent, and obedient heart; to the end that we may obtain forgiveness of the same, by his infinite goodness and mercy. And although we ought at all times humbly to acknowledge our sins before God; yet ought we most chiefly so to do, when we assemble and meet together to render thanks for the great

benefits that we have received at his hands, to set forth his most worthy praise, to hear his most holy Word, and to ask those things which are requisite and necessary, as well for the body as the soul. Wherefore I pray and beseech you, as many as are here present, to accompany me with a pure heart, and humble voice, unto the throne of the heavenly grace, saying after me: 



All               Almighty and most merciful Father, we have erred,                                       and strayed from thy ways like lost sheep.

                    We have followed too much the devices and desires

                    of our own hearts. 

                    We have offended against thy holy laws.

                    We have left undone those things which we ought to                                   have done; and we have done those things which we

                    ought not to have done; and there is no health in us. 


                    But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us, miserable offenders.

                    Spare thou them, O God, which confess their faults.

                    Restore thou them that are penitent;

                    according to thy promises declared unto mankind

                    in Christ Jesu our Lord.

                    And grant, O most merciful Father, for his sake, that

                    we may hereafter live a godly, righteous, and sober

                    life, to the glory of thy holy Name. Amen. 





Almighty God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who desireth not the death of a sinner, but rather that he may turn from his wickedness, and live; and hath given power, and commandment, to his ministers, to declare and pronounce to his people, being penitent, the absolution and remission of their sins: he pardoneth and absolveth all them that truly repent, and unfeignedly believe his holy Gospel. 


Wherefore let us beseech him to grant us true repentance, and his Holy Spirit, that those things may please him, which we do at this present; and that the rest of our life hereafter may be pure, and holy; so that at the last we may come to his eternal joy; through Jesus Christ our Lord.

All                Amen. 


If no priest is present the person saying the Service shall read the following Collect for the Twenty-First Sunday after Trinity.


GRANT, we beseech thee, merciful Lord, to thy faithful people pardon and peace; that they may be cleansed from all their sins, and serve thee with a quiet mind; through Jesus Christ our Lord.

All                Amen


All               Our Father, which art in heaven, hallowed be thy          

                    name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, in earth as

                    it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And

                    forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive them that

                    trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation,

                    but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, the

                    power, and the glory, for ever and ever. Amen.




O Lord open thou our lips.

All            And our mouth shall show forth thy praise.


O God make speed to save us.

All             O Lord, make haste to help us


Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost;

All            As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, 

                 world without end. Amen.


Praise ye the Lord.

All            The Lord’s name be praised.


PSALM Psalm 37:1-20

Fret not because of evildoers; 

be not jealous of those who do wrong.


For they shall soon wither like grass 

and like the green herb fade away.


Trust in the Lord and be doing good; 

dwell in the land and be nourished with truth.


Let your delight be in the Lord 

and he will give you your heart’s desire.


Commit your way to the Lord and put your trust in him, 

and he will bring it to pass.


He will make your righteousness as clear as the light 

and your just dealing as the noonday. 


Be still before the Lord and wait for him; 

do not fret over those that prosper

as they follow their evil schemes.


Refrain from anger and abandon wrath; 

do not fret, lest you be moved to do evil.


For evildoers shall be cut off, 

but those who wait upon the Lord shall possess the land.


Yet a little while and the wicked shall be no more; 

you will search for their place and find them gone.


But the lowly shall possess the land 

and shall delight in abundance of peace. 


The wicked plot against the righteous 

and gnash at them with their teeth.


The Lord shall laugh at the wicked, 

for he sees that their day is coming.


The wicked draw their sword and bend their bow

to strike down the poor and needy, 

to slaughter those who walk in truth.


Their sword shall go through their own heart 

and their bows shall be broken.


The little that the righteous have 

is better than great riches of the wicked.


For the arms of the wicked shall be broken, 

but the Lord upholds the righteous. 


The Lord knows the days of the godly, 

and their inheritance shall stand for ever.


They shall not be put to shame in the perilous time, 

and in days of famine they shall have enough.


But the wicked shall perish;

like the glory of the meadows

the enemies of the Lord shall vanish; 

they shall vanish like smoke.



All            My soul doth magnify the Lord:

                 and my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.

                 For he hath regarded:

                 the lowliness of his hand-maiden.

                 For behold, from henceforth:

                 all generations shall call me blessed.

                 For he that is mighty hath magnified me:

                 and holy is his Name.

                 And his mercy is on them that fear him:

                 throughout all generations.

                 He hath shewed strength with his arm:

                 he hath scattered the proud 

                 in the imagination of their hearts.

                 He hath put down the mighty from their seat:

                 and hath exalted the humble and meek.

                 He hath filled the hungry with good things:

                 and the rich he hath sent empty away.

                 He remembering his mercy hath holpen his servant Israel:

                 as he promised to our forefathers, 

                 Abraham and his seed, for ever.

                 Glory be to the Father, and to the Son :

                 and to the Holy Ghost;

                 As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be :

                 world without end. Amen.                                                              

LUKE 1.46-55


by  Joanna Collicutt

Fret not because of evildoers;
be not jealous of those who do wrong.

‘… he will give you your heart’s desire’ (v.4)


If faith is about orienting ourselves Godwards and aligning ourselves with his nature (see reflection on Psalm 5), trust is about continuing on that way even when there are no apparent benefits and some obvious costs.


Like Jesus, the psalmist enjoins his hearers not to worry or become discouraged by what they see around them – the apparent triumph of evil over good. Instead, they are to remember that things can always be seen differently. They can be seen from another angle or, as in this case, in terms of a different time-frame. The perspective they and we are required to take is not only a heavenly perspective; it is an ultimate perspective.


For the psalmist and his people, this is a long game, one that involves patience and endurance, which are in their turn supported by an attitude of sitting somewhat lightly to the challenges of our present situation, always aware that it is a provisional state of affairs.


This psalmist has the gift of old age, which helps him take this longer-term view. As we age, our bodies weaken, and as the end of life approaches, there can be an opening up of spiritual awareness (sometimes referred to as ‘gerotranscendence’). We realize that the things we were striving for in youth and middle-age are perhaps not so important after all, and we are given the opportunity of recalibrating our priorities. We can find that our heart’s desire is not quite what we thought – prosperity, social success, legacy – but instead that our hearts are restless for their eternal rest in God.




The salvation of the righteous comes from the Lord.



Blessed and holy God,

ever merciful and forgiving,

may we turn from what is evil

and do what is good in your sight,

for you have saved us by the cross of your Son,

our Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen



All            LORD, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace:

                 according to thy word.

                 For mine eyes have seen thy salvation;

                 Which thou hast prepared before the face of all people;

                 To be a light to lighten the Gentiles:

                 and to be the glory of thy people Israel.

                 Glory be to the Father, and to the Son:

                 and to the Holy Ghost;

                 As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be

                 world without end. Amen.                                                                  

LUKE 2.29-32



All            I believe in God the Father Almighty,

                 maker of heaven and earth:

                 and in Jesus Christ his only Son our Lord,

                 who was conceived by the Holy Ghost,

                 born of the Virgin Mary,

                 suffered under Pontius Pilate,

                 was crucified, dead, and buried.

                 He descended into hell;

                 the third day he rose again from the dead;

                 he ascended into heaven,

                 and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty;

                 from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead.

                 I believe in the Holy Ghost; the holy catholic Church;

                 the communion of saints; the forgiveness of sins;

                 the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting.




The Lord be with you.

All            And with thy spirit.


Let us pray.


Lord have mercy upon us.

All            Christ have mercy upon us.

Lord have mercy upon us.


All             Our Father, which art in heaven,

                  hallowed be Thy name.

                  Thy Kingdom come; thy will be done, 

                  On earth as it is in heaven.

                  Give us this day our daily bread.

                  And forgive us our trespasses,

                  as we forgive them who trespass against us.

                  And lead us not into temptation;

                  but deliver us from evil.



O Lord, show thy mercy upon us.

All            And grant us thy salvation.


O Lord save the Queen.

All            And mercifully hear us when we call upon thee.


Endue thy ministers with righteousness.

All            And make thy chosen people joyful.


O Lord save thy people.

All            And bless thine inheritance.


Give peace in our time, O Lord.

All            Because there is none other that fighteth for us, but

                 only thou, O God.


O God make clean our hearts with in us.

All            And take not thy Holy Spirit from us.



Collect for today

O God, the protector of all who trust in thee,

without whom nothing is strong, nothing is holy:

increase and multiply upon us thy mercy;

that with thee 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 thee,

in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and for ever. Amen.


concluding with...


The Prayer of St. Chrysostom


All            Almighty God, who hast given us grace at this time      

                 with one accord to make our common supplications

                 unto thee; and dost promise that when two or three  

                 are gathered together in thy Name thou wilt grant

                 their requests: Fulfil now, O Lord, the desires and    

                 petitions of thy servants, as may be most expedient

                 for them; granting us in this world knowledge of thy  

                 truth, and in the world to come life everlasting. Amen.


                 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ,

                 and the love of God,

                 and the fellowship of the Holy Ghost,

                 be with us all evermore. Amen




The peace of God, which passeth all understanding, 

keep your hearts and minds in the knowledge and love of God, 

and of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord: 

And the blessing of God Almighty, 

the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, 

be amongst you and remain with you always. 

All            Amen.
