O God, you have endowed us with memory, reason, and skill.

We thank you for the faithful legacy of [N. and all others]

May we, like them, respect your gift of intelligence fully and to your glory.

In the Name of God:  Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  Amen.

  1. Thanks to all who have liked this post! I wrote the prayer and chose the readings because I looked for a certain proper in my usual sources (Episcopal and Lutheran books, mainly) and did not find anything to my liking for my purpose, an upcoming post at SUNDRY THOUGHTS about a Greek and Latin Scholar who was also a priest of The Church of England.
