pentecost 25

Eternal God,
you caused all holy scripture
to be written for our learning.
Grant us so to hear them,
read, mark, learn,
and inwardly digest them,
that we may embrace and ever hold fast
the blessed hope of everlasting life,
which you have given us
in our Saviour Jesus Christ,
who lives and reigns
with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.
