Suffrages 

These petitionary versicles and responses precede the collects in the Daily Offices (see, e.g., BCP pp. 97-98, 121-122). The suffrages in the BCP are based on those in the Sarum offices, although Suffrages B for Evening Prayer are from a Byzantine evening litany. They are responsive prayers of petition which are usually concluded with a collect.
