Collect for Rogation Tuesday
Almighty God, whose Son Jesus Christ in his earthly life shared our toil and hallowed our labor: Be present with your people where they work; make those who carry on the industries and commerce of this land responsive to your will; and give to us all a pride in what we do, and a just return for our labor; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
Rogation Days are special days of prayer for God’s provision. Our Anglican forebears have participated in these days of prayer since 747 that traditionally fall on the Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday preceding Ascension Day (Thursday, May 30 this year).
As we approach the end of our fiscal year and recognize our need for God’s provision, I solemnly invite you to prayer and fasting these three days.
Each morning you’ll receive an email like this one with scripture lessons and prayers. Read the scriptures, listening for the Spirit of God to speak to you through his Word. Pray the Lord’s Prayer and the collect for the day. And then take a moment to intercede for St. Bart’s, her mission and ministries, and for God’s provision for his Church. Do this at a fixed time in the morning and the evening.
To gather up our corporate yet individual prayers, we will meet for a special Rogation Day Service, Wednesday, May 29, at 8:15 am.
