Prayer of the week

O Lord,
raise up your power and come among us,
and with great might succour us,
that, whereas through our sins and wickedness
we are sore let and hindered
    in running the race that is set before us,
your bountiful grace and mercy
    may speedily help and deliver us;
through your Son our Lord,
to whom with you and the Holy Spirit,
be honour and glory, now and for ever. Amen
