Collect of the Day: Fifth Sunday of Easter

May 6, 2010

From the Book of Common Prayer:

Almighty God, whom truly to know is everlasting life: Grant us so perfectly to know your Son Jesus Christ to be the way, the truth, and the life, that we may steadfastly follow his steps in the way that leads to eternal life; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

I would happily include prayers from our United Methodist Book of Worship, which is an excellent prayer and worship resource, but it’s not freely available online. As we Methodists are “children” of the Church of England, our liturgies and doctrine are shaped to a large extent by the Anglican tradition, including the Book of Common Prayer.
