Acclamations

Celebrant: For unto us a child is born,
People: Unto us a son is given.

Collects

O Glorious Lord, your servant Stephen looked up to heaven and prayed for his persecutors: grant that in all our sufferings here upon earth we may love and forgive our enemies, looking steadfastly to Jesus Christ our Lord, who sits at your right hand and intercedes for us; and who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
