Prayer for God's inspiration and help
may everything we do
begin with your inspiration
and continue with your saving help.
Let our work always find its origin in you
and through you reach completion.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.
This is a collect from the liturgy. It appears in Morning Prayer on Monday of the First Week in Ordinary Time.
