We beseech Thee, O Lord, to follow with thy richest blessing the religious meditations of this hour. May Thy holy word sink deep into our minds, that our souls may take hold of it as the hope over everlasting life. May we feel its transforming power, and be doers of its heavnly lessons, lest the living sense of Thy favor die away from our affections and our thoughts.
Grant us Thy continual grace, that we may walk as children of light and of the day, adorning the doctrine of God our Saviour in all things; and of Thy great mercy preserve our going out, and our coming in, from this time forth, and forever more. Amen
- Second of “Prayers after Sermon” in Gospel Liturgy, p. 60
