A Valentine for Parents {From the Archives}

One thing I love about the prayer book is that it gives direction that is simple, precise, and Christ-focused to my thoughts and inward groanings.  This is the prayer that I say the most, under my breath, in desperation, at the end of a long day as I fall asleep: Almighty God, heavenly Father, who hast blessed us with the joy and care of children; Give us light and strength so to train them, that they may love whatsoever things are true and pure and lovely and of good report, following the example of their Savior, Jesus Christ.  Amen.

Collects beyond Christmas

Have you found any usefulness from the printable collects we have offered?  I have enjoyed making them, and ruminating on the words as I re-type them into cards.  The prayers are so practical. Here you can find the next set of collects for the Circumcision of Christ through Epiphany.  I have formatted these so that if you print all three pages, you will have one of each collect for the Sundays from now until Lent begins.
