Collects for the week:
Monday: Father, you gave Monica the spiritual gifts to persevere in prayer for the conversion of her husband and son. Grant that we may so persevere in our prayers as to draw nearer to you each day. This we ask through Yeshua haMoshiach who lives and reigns with you and Ruach haKodesh, one God in glory everlasting. Amen. (white)
Tuesday: Living Lord, we celebrate your defeat of death and victory over thegrave. Our faith in you assures us that if we experience a death like yours, we will also experience a resurrection like yours. In you we put our trust and hope. Amen.
Wednesday: May the Holy Spirit keep us ever mindful that our views are not always as God's views. Help us to have the patience to listen to his will and trust in his ways. In this, we shall become his patient children. Amen.
Thursday: Grant heavenly Father, that we who celebrate with joy the day of the Lord's resurrection now go out into the world and do his will. The Lord is risen indeed! Let us glorify his name! Amen
Friday: Dear Lord, you granted to Dame Juilian visions of unspeakable things and gave her a grace to guide others in their spiritual lives. Raise up in this and every generation people who are willing to share their gifts and build up others in the spiritual life.

Saturday: Heavenly Father, you cleansed the lips of Isaiah and raised him up to be a witness to the suffering servant and to help us to recognise the suffering servant. Remind us daily, since we are called by your name, that we are yours, and that we should daily remind those around us of your mighty deeds. This we ask through Yeshua haMoshiach who lives and reigns with you and the Ruach haKodesh, one God in glory everlasting. Amen (red)
