Almighty God,

who after the creation of the world

rested from all you works 

and sanctified a day of rest 

for all your creatures: 

Grant that we,

putting away all earthly anxieties,

may be duly prepared 

for the service of your sanctuary, 

and that our rest here upon earth 

may be a preparation 

for the eternal rest 

promised to your people in heaven; 

through Jesus Christ our Lord. 


(A collect for Saturdays from The Book of Common Prayer)
