Collect Prayer:

O God, the protector of all who trust in you,

without whom nothing is strong, nothing is holy:

increase and multiply upon us your mercy;

that with you as our ruler and guide

we may so pass through things temporal

that we lose not our hold on things eternal;

grant this, heavenly Father,

for our Lord Jesus Christ’s sake,

who is alive and reigns with you,

in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and for ever.

Post Communion Prayer:

Eternal God,

comfort of the afflicted and healer of the broken,

you have fed us at the table of life and hope:

teach us the ways of gentleness and peace,

that all the world may acknowledge

the kingdom of your Son Jesus Christ our Lord.

Job 38:1-11

‘Who is this that darkens counsel by words without knowledge?Gird up your loins like a man,    I will question you, and you shall declare to me.

‘Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth?    Tell me, if you have understanding.Who determined its measurements—surely you know!    Or who stretched the line upon it?On what were its bases sunk,    or who laid its cornerstonewhen the morning stars sang together    and all the heavenly beings[a] shouted for joy?

‘Or who shut in the sea with doors    when it burst out from the womb?—when I made the clouds its garment,    and thick darkness its swaddling band,10 and prescribed bounds for it,    and set bars and doors,11 and said, “Thus far shall you come, and no farther,    and here shall your proud waves be stopped”?

Psalm 107:23-32

23 Some went down to the sea in ships,

    doing business on the mighty waters;

24 they saw the deeds of the Lord,

    his wondrous works in the deep.

25 For he commanded and raised the stormy wind,

    which lifted up the waves of the sea.

26 They mounted up to heaven, they went down to the depths;

    their courage melted away in their calamity;

27 they reeled and staggered like drunkards,

    and were at their wits’ end.

28 Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble,

    and he brought them out from their distress;

29 he made the storm be still,

    and the waves of the sea were hushed.

30 Then they were glad because they had quiet,

    and he brought them to their desired haven.

31 Let them thank the Lord for his steadfast love,

    for his wonderful works to humankind.

32 Let them extol him in the congregation of the people,

    and praise him in the assembly of the elders

2 Corinthians 6:1-13

As we work together with him,[a] we urge you also not to accept the grace of God in vain. For he says,

‘At an acceptable time I have listened to you,    and on a day of salvation I have helped you.’

See, now is the acceptable time; see, now is the day of salvation! We are putting no obstacle in anyone’s way, so that no fault may be found with our ministry, but as servants of God we have commended ourselves in every way: through great endurance, in afflictions, hardships, calamities, beatings, imprisonments, riots, labours, sleepless nights, hunger; by purity, knowledge, patience, kindness, holiness of spirit, genuine love, truthful speech, and the power of God; with the weapons of righteousness for the right hand and for the left; in honour and dishonour, in ill repute and good repute. We are treated as impostors, and yet are true; as unknown, and yet are well known; as dying, and see—we are alive; as punished, and yet not killed; 10 as sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing, and yet possessing everything.

11 We have spoken frankly to you Corinthians; our heart is wide open to you. 12 There is no restriction in our affections, but only in yours. 13 In return—I speak as to children—open wide your hearts also.

Mark 4:35-41

35 On that day, when evening had come, he said to them, ‘Let us go across to the other side.’ 36 And leaving the crowd behind, they took him with them in the boat, just as he was. Other boats were with him. 37 A great gale arose, and the waves beat into the boat, so that the boat was already being swamped. 38 But he was in the stern, asleep on the cushion; and they woke him up and said to him, ‘Teacher, do you not care that we are perishing?’ 39 He woke up and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, ‘Peace! Be still!’ Then the wind ceased, and there was a dead calm. 40 He said to them, ‘Why are you afraid? Have you still no faith?’ 41 And they were filled with great awe and said to one another, ‘Who then is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?
