Collect for the Eighth Sunday after Trinity
(7 August)
Lord God,
your Son left the riches of heaven
and became poor for our sake:
when we prosper save us from pride,
when we are needy save us from despair,
that we may trust in you alone;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.

South London Citizens
South London Citizens have launched their second annual survey of south Londoners' mental health and wellbeing. Please take part in the survey, and encourage your friends, families and networks to do so, so that South London Citizens, and the groups they are working with, can hear from as many voices as possible.

The Parish Eucharist at St John's will be led by Mark and will be uploaded to YouTube later in the day.

Prayer
Lord God, heavenly Father,
guide and direct us by your Holy Spirit,
that we may not forget our sins and be filled with pride,
but continue in daily repentance and renewal,
seeking our comfort only
in the blessed knowledge
that you will be merciful to us,
forgive us our sins
and grant us eternal life;
through your beloved Son,
Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and forever.
