prayer for the week

Grant, O merciful God, that your Church, being gathered together in unity by your Holy Spirit, may show forth your power among all peoples, to the glory of your Name; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirt, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

from Book of Common Prayer

Sometimes I like the older version from BCP and today I think that's true. But I stuck to the contemporary rendering which I'm committed to for Bible translations as well as writings. Scot has posted the older version today, which he does sometimes. You can get either from my prayer links as well as from his.

I use this prayer the entire week, and it is the main collect for each day from Sunday to Saturday along with other prayers and readings.

I just saw that Scot added the contemporary version of that prayer as well.
