Pastoral Prayer Trinity Sunday

Holy, holy, holy God, in calling forth creation from the void, revealing yourself in human flesh, and pouring forth your wisdom to guide us, you manifest your concern for your whole universe. You invite us, as your people, to gather the world’s needs into our hearts and bring them before you.

Holy, holy, holy Father, Father of Christ, Immanuel, upon whom the Spirit remained, remain with us today. Guide us to all truth by your Spirit that we may proclaim all that Christ revealed and rejoice in the glory he shared with us. Let us proclaim the good news with our words of hope. Let us proclaim the good news with our deeds of peace and reconciliation. Let us proclaim the good news by our commitment to love and to serve those made in your image. Let us hear the good news when we are still. Let us believe the good news through trust in God’s promise.

Holy, holy, holy Lord, you have given to us your servants grace, by the confession of a true faith, to acknowledge the glory of the eternal Trinity, and in the power of our divine Majesty to worship the Unity: Keep us steadfast in this faith and worship, and bring us at last to see you in your one and eternal glory. We pray this in the name of Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever as we continue to pray saying:

Our Father, who 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 those who trespass against us

Lead us not into temptation

But deliver us from evil

For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.
