A collect for the Society of Saint Aelred
Most sweet Lord, our Helper always, release wisdom upon the Society of Saint Aelred from the seat of your greatness that it may be with us, toil with us, speak in us; may it, according to your good pleasure, direct all our thoughts, our words, our works and councils, to the honor of your Name, the benefit of your people, and our salvation; through Jesus Christ our Friend and Savior, to whom with you and the Holy Spirit, be honor and glory throughout all ages. Amen.
Two collects for the Oratory of the Good Shepherd
Almighty God, we humbly pray you to strengthen and confirm all your faithful people, especially your servants of the Oratory, and all who are in fellowship with them. Enliven them with you Holy Spirit, so that turning to you in repentance and love, we and all creation may rejoice in your presence; through Jesus Christ our Lord, to who with you and the Holy Spirit be honor and glory, now and forever. Amen.
God of peace, you brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus Christ the great shepherd of the sheep by the blood of the eternal covenant. Help us to know him as our Lord, to listen to his voice and follow him wherever he leads, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
A collect for the Anglican Order of Preachers
Look with favor, O Lord, upon the friars and sisters of the Anglican Order of Preachers, that by their life and ministry many may be brought to Christ, in the power of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
