THIRD SUNDAY AFTER PENTECOST – COLLECT OF THE WORD

Blessed Lord, since You have caused all Holy Scriptures to be writ-ten for our learning, grant that we may so hear them, read, mark, learn, and inwardly digest them that we may em-brace and ever hold fast the blessed hope of everlasting life; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.
