Prayers Ancient and Modern 02/23

O God, we have known and believed the love that Thou hast I for us. May we, by dwelling in love, dwell in Thee, and Thou in us. May we learn to love Thee Whom we have not seen, by loving our brethren whom we have seen. Teach us. O heavenly Father, the love wherewith Thou hasi loved us; fashion us, O blessed Lord, after Thine own example of love; shed abroad, O Thou Holy Spirit of Love, the love of God and man in our hearts— Amen.

Henry Alford (1810-1871)

O Lord, vouchsafe to look mercifully upon us, and grant that we may choose the way of peace; so that, rescued from the captivity of the sins which have oppressed us, we may attiin the dwellings of the heavenly Jerusalem; through Jesus Christ— Amen.

Sarum Breviary, 1085
