Holy and loving God,
from you Lancelot Andrewes received
gifts of scholarship
and a singular power in prayer;
teach us to pray
not only for ourselves
but for your struggling world,
through him who showed us how to pray,
Jesus Christ our Lord.
your will be done
on earth as in heaven.
Almighty and everlasting God,
we thank you that you have brought us safely
to the beginning of this day;
keep us from falling into sin or running into danger,
and guide us to do always what is right in your eyes.
