COLLECT
O Lord,
grant that your faithful people
may enter this season of penitence with faithfulness,
and complete it with steadfast devotion;
through Jesus Christ, our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, world without end.

On the Weekdays after Ash Wednesday either the Collect for Ash Wednesday or the following Collect may be used. If the Collect for Ash Wednesday is used, this Collect may be used as the Prayer after Communion as an alternative to the Prayers in section 24 of the Scottish Liturgy 1982. This Collect may also be used as the Prayer after Communion throughout Lent until Maundy Thursday.

Almighty God,
you hate nothing that you have made,
and forgive the sins of all who are penitent:
create in us a clean and contrite heart;
that, in lamenting our sinfulness,
we may receive from you, the God of all mercy,
forgiveness and perfect peace;
through Jesus Christ, our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, world without end.
