Collect for the Eighth Sunday after Trinity
(21 July)
Lord God,
your Son left the riches of heaven
and became poor for our sake:
when we prosper save us from pride,
when we are needy save us from despair,
that we may trust in you alone;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.

O God,
your only Son hung on the cross for us,
and there he paid the price of our redemption with his blood,
that we, through his death, might receive adoption as your children.
Give us grace to call you Father
in true faith;
through your Son,
Jesus Christ our Lord.
