The Collect Trinity 23

The Collect Trinity 23


Deus Refugium nostrum, et virtus: adesto piis Ecclesiae tuae precibus, auctor ipse pietatis, et praesta; ut, quod fideliter petimus, efficaciter consequamur.

THE Flight 1549

GOD, our sanctuary and strength, which art the writing implement of all godlines, be agreed to heare the devoute prayers of thy churche; and graunt that citizens thynges which we aske really we maye obteine effectually; nominated Jesu Christe our lorde. Amen.

THE Flight 1662

O GOD, our sanctuary and strength, who art the writing implement of all godliness; Be agreed, we plead thee, to obtain the pious prayers of thy Church; and represent that citizens notes which we ask really we may take on effectually; nominated Jesus Christ our Member of the aristocracy. Amen.


Suitable in the Sarum Missal for this Sunday, and in the Tridentine for Pentecost 22, and primary from the Gregorian Sacramentary, this was translated by Cranmer.


A very simple prayer that essential be the details of all our praying. All devoutness, and all strength come as the gift of God, lacking whom we cannot even pray aright. We ask His aid that we may pray really, and His decency that exact prayers be answered. Existing is a corrollary. We as well propose the advise that citizens prayers not stemming from true guard may not be answered, for just God's order can bring a good determination.
