Collect for The Twentieth Sunday After Trinity
God, the giver of life,

whose Holy Spirit wells up within your Church:
by the Spirit’s gifts equip us to live the gospel of Christ
and make us eager to do your will,
that we may share with the whole creation
the joys of eternal life;
through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever. Amen

Post Communion Prayer for The Twentieth Sunday After Trinity

God our Father,whose Son, the light unfailing,

has come from heaven to deliver the world
from the darkness of ignorance:
let these holy mysteries open the eyes of our understanding
that we may know the way of life,
and walk in it without stumbling;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

The Readings:     Isa. 53. 4-end or Heb. 5. 1-10

Gospel: Mark 10 35-45

James and John, the sons of Zebedee, came forward to him and said to him,
‘Teacher, we want you to do for us whatever we ask of you.’ And he said to them,
‘What is it you want me to do for you?’ And they said to him, ‘Grant us to sit, one
at your right hand and one at your left, in your glory.’ But Jesus said to them, ‘You
do not know what you are asking. Are you able to drink the cup that I drink, or be
baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with?’ They replied, ‘We are able.’
Then Jesus said to them, ‘The cup that I drink you will drink; and with the baptism
with which I am baptized, you will be baptized; but to sit at my right hand or at my
left is not mine to grant, but it is for those for whom it has been prepared.’

When the ten heard this, they began to be angry with James and John. So Jesus
called them and said to them, ‘You know that among the Gentiles those whom
they recognize as their rulers lord it over them, and their great ones are tyrants
over them. But it is not so among you; but whoever wishes to become great
among you must be your servant, and whoever wishes to be first among you must
be slave of all. For the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give
his life a ransom for many.’
