For Our Learning

In 1549 At the height of the English Reformation Thomas Cranmer wrote a beautiful prayer, called a collect.

A Collect for this Second Sunday of Advent.

BLESSED Lord, who hast caused all holy Scriptures to be written for our learning: Grant that we may in such wise hear them, read, mark, learn, and inwardly digest them, that by patience and comfort of thy holy Word, we may embrace and ever hold fast the blessed hope of everlasting life, which thou hast given us in our Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen
