The Collect for St Stephen’s Day

The Collect for St Stephen’s Day (December 26)
Book of Common Prayer

Lord Jesus Christ, grant that, in all our sufferings in witness to your truth, we may learn to look steadfastly to heaven and see by faith the glory that is to be revealed, and filled with the Holy Spirit may learn to pray for our persecutors, as Stephen your first martyr prayed for his murderers to you, blessed Jesus, where you stand at the right hand of God to aid all who suffer for you, our only mediator and advocate. Amen.
