Let us pray

SInce I spoke of favorite hymns and favorite verses from The Bible, it seems only fair that I should next speak of favorite prayers. (Hey did I do this once before? Can someone look back through my blog and see it there is a similar entry? Am I losing my mind?)

Anyway, some of you may make up your prayers off the top of your head. Some of you may read ones from books. Whichever is true for you, you still might have a favorite. Would youperhaps like to share it?

My favorite -

We do not presume to come to this thy Table, O merciful Lord, trusting in our own righteousness, but in thy manifold and great mercies. We are not worthy so much as to gather up the crumbs under thy Table. But thou art the same Lord, whose property is always to have mercy: Grant us therefore, gracious Lord, so to eat the flesh of thy dear Son Jesus Christ, and to drink his blood, that our sinful bodies may be made clean by his body, and our souls washed through his most precious blood, and that we may evermore dwell in him, and he in us. Amen.
