Prayers Ancient and Modern 07/31

Bestow Thy light upon us, O Lord, so that, being rid of the darkness of our hearts, we may attain unto the true light—Amen.

Sarum Breviary, A.D. 1085.

Almighty God, who forgivest all things to those who cry unto Thee, grant unto us that, whatsoever of life there may be remaining for us, we may give diligent heed at this very hour to Thy call; that, so coming unto Thee, we may find work in Thy vineyard, and do it faithfully unto the end; beseeching Thee to forgive the wasted hours of the past, and of Thy graciousness to see that there be no more. For all time to come grant us to serve Thee diligently and dutifully, that at last we may hear Thy voice saying unto us, “Well done, good and faithful servants: enter ye into the joy of your Lord.” So be it unto us all, through Jesus Christ our Lord—Amen.

George Dawson.
