GRANT O Lord, that
we may do our work this week as unto Thee and not
All our powers of body and mind are
O Lord: grant that we may devote
them all to Thy service.
Save us from negligence and
indolence, from vanity, pride and self
Teach us to seek out the truth and
enable us to find it and grant that, while
we increase in the knowledge of earthly things,
we may also grow in
Grace and in the knowledge of Thee and of Jesus
Christ whom Thou hast sent.
We beseech of Thee, Thy Help and
Mercy through Christ our Lord.
