O LORDE whiche doeste teache us that all our doynges withoute charitie are nothyng woorthe; sende thy holy ghost, and powre into our heartes that most excellent gyft of charitie, the very bond of peace and al vertues, without the whiche whosoever liveth is counted dead before thee: Graunte this for thy onlye sonne, Jesus Christes sake.
Collect for The Sonday called Quinquagesima 1549 BCP
O God, our teacher and our judge:
Enrich our hearts with the goodness of your wisdom
and renew us from within:
that all our actions, all our thoughts and all our words
may bear the fruit of your transforming grace;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
