The Lincolnshire Regiment Collect

The Lincolnshire Regiment

The Lincolnshire Regiment Collect


Almighty God,

whose true soldiers stand in danger every hour,

grant to us,

The Lincolnshire Regiment,

that having passed through perils in the wilderness and perils in the sea,

and having known the trials of battle,

we may never wander from Thy commandments,

nor make shipwreck of our faith,

but fight the good fight.


The Lincolnshire Regiment

The Collect was provided by Major John Lee, in reply to an enquiry from Katrina Bradley.

Use of the Collect

A Collect is a specific prayer designed for a special day or a particular gathering. It is found at the end of the entrance rite (the part of the liturgy at the beginning of the service), before the day's Scripture readings.

The Collect is led into by the apostolic greeting :

  • Precentor: "The Lord be with you".
  • Congregation: "And also with you".
  • Precentor: "Let us pray".

It is followed by a pause - a time for the congregation to collect their thoughts and turn them to God.

The traditional collect follows a set format:

  • Address the Father;
  • appeal to something about God's character that is relevant to what is being prayed about;
  • the request;
  • why you're asking;
  • through Jesus;
  • a praise of God.

The Collect can be spoken or intoned.
