Saint James, the Brother of our Lord Year B

Collect One

Grant, we beseech thee, O God,
that after the example of thy servant, James the Just,
brother of our Lord,
thy Church may give itself continually to prayer
and to the reconciliation of all who are at variance and enmity;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Collect Two

Lord, God of peace:
Grant that after the example of your servant,
James the brother of our Lord,
your Church may give itself continually to prayer
and to the reconciliation of all
who are caught up in hatred or enmity;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Post Communion Prayer

Lord Jesus Christ,
we thank you that after your resurrection you appeared to James,
and endowed him with gifts of leadership for your Church.
May we, who have known you now in the breaking of bread,
be people of prayer and reconciliation.
We ask it for your love’s sake.
