The Conversion of St. Paul - Collects

From the Book of Common Prayer

O GOD, who, through the preaching of the
blessed Apostle Saint Paul, hast caused the
light of the Gospel to shine throughout the world:
Grant, we beseech thee, that we, having his wonderful
conversion in remembrance, may show
forth our thankfulness unto thee for the same,
by following the holy doctrine which he taught;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

From the Book of Alternative Services

Almighty God,
by the preaching of your servant Paul
you caused the light of the gospel
to shine throughout the world.
May we who celebrate his wonderful conversion
follow him in bearing witness to your truth;
through Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever. Amen
