The Twenty-First Sunday after Trinity | 10/24/2021
Introduction to the Word for Worship
And Jesus said to him, “What do you want me to do for you?” And the blind man said to him, “Rabbi, let me recover my sight.” (Mark 10:51)
He will save assuredly; yet he will do so just in the way he has promised. But in what way has he promised? On our willing it, and on our hearing him. For he does not make a promise to blocks of wood.
-St. John Chrysostom
The Collect of the Day
Almighty and everlasting God, you govern all things both in heaven and on earth: Mercifully hear the supplications of your people, and in our time grant us your peace; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

1 How long will you utterly forget me, O Lord? *
How long will you hide your face from me?
2 How long shall I seek counsel in my soul and be so vexed in my heart? *
How long shall my enemy triumph over me?
3 Consider and hear me, O Lord my God; *
give light to my eyes, that I sleep not in death,
4 Lest my enemy say, “I have prevailed against him”; *
for if I am cast down, those who trouble me will rejoice.
5 But my trust is in your mercy, *
and my heart is joyful in your salvation.
6 I will sing of the Lord, because he has dealt so lovingly with me; *
indeed, I will praise the Name of the Lord Most High.
(from the New Coverdale Psalter as found in the 2019 Book of Common Prayer)
