The Collect Call: For Proper 23

A short prayer seems like a throwaway until our fearless hosts and special guest Andy Leigh start digging into bizarre grammatical structures and obscure vocabulary terms. It’s that kind of podcast, y’all. Also: biblical typos, and crashing a women’s retreat.

The Collect Call is a podcast that unpacks and reflects upon the meaning of the collect of the week – that prayer at the start of the service that changes every week. Turns out there’s a lot in those little paragraphs! Hosts Brendan O’Sullivan-Hale and Holli Powell challenge themselves to learn about the history of the prayers, reflect on their spiritual meaning and application to daily life, and, inevitably, reduce them to tweets.

This Week’s Prayer

(page 234 of the Book of Common Prayer, or bcponline.org):

Lord, we pray that your grace may always precede and follow us, that we may continually be given to good works; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
