The Collect/Prayer of the Day
O God, protector of all who trust in you, without whom nothing is strong and nothing is holy, increase and multiply your mercy on us, that with you as our Ruler and Guide we may pass through things temporal that we lose not the things eternal; through Jesus Christ, your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
1 Kings 3:5-12; Romans 8:28-30; Matthew 13:44-52
