Almighty and everlasting God,

who caused all holy scriptures to be written for our learning:

Grant us so to learn them,

read, mark, and inwardly digest them,

that we may embrace and ever hold fast

the blessed hope of everlasting life,

which you have given us in our Savior Jesus Christ;

who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,

one God, for ever and ever.  Amen.

–Contemporary Collect for Proper 28, from The Book of Common Prayer (1979)
