Collect for Phillips Brooks

  1. O everlasting God, you revealed truth to your servant Phillips Brooks, 

    and so formed and molded his mind and heart that he was able to mediate that truth 
    with grace and power: 

    Grant, we pray, that all whom you call to preach the Gospel 
    may steep themselves in your Word, and conform their lives to your will; 
    through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, 
    one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
