For the remainder of Ordinary Time, our Prayer Page will host some of the possibly hidden gems of the BCP that can be prayed in your personal daily devotions or as part of your corporate worship. Please use them and reacquint yourself with our wonderful book:
Prayers for Ordinary Time
September 25 - October 8
For the Future of the Human Race BCP page 828
O God our heavenly Father, you have blessed us and given us dominion over all the earth: Increase our reverence before the mystery of life; and give us new insight into your purposes for the human race, and new wisdom and determination in making provision for its future in accordance with your will; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Saint Michael and All Angels BCP page 244
Everlasting God, you have ordained and constituted in a wonderful order the ministries of angels and mortals: Mercifully grant that, as your holy angels always serve and worship you in heaven, so by your appointment they may help and defend us here on earth; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
