Collect Prayer - Second Sunday of Advent
O Lord, raise up we pray Your power and come among us, and with great might help us, that where, through our sins and wickedness we are sore and hindered in running the race that is set before us, your bountiful grace and mercy may speedily help and deliver us; through the satisfaction of Your Son our Lord, to whom with You and the Holy Spirit be honour and glory, now and forever. Amen
