A very moving prayer

For any of us who have spent a lifetime reading, puzzling, studying, annotating, digesting, failing to digest, opening, expounding, wondering and praying with the Scriptures, this week’s Collect will touch a chord:

Blessed Lord, who caused all holy Scriptures to be written for our learning: help us so to hear them, to read, mark, learn and inwardly digest them that, through patience, and the comfort of your holy word, we may embrace and for ever hold fast the hope of everlasting life, which you have given us in our Saviour Jesus Christ, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
