Collect for Bible Sunday
Blessed Lord, who caused all holy Scriptures to be
written for our learning: help us so to hear them, to
read, mark, learn and inwardly digest them that,
through patience, and the comfort of your holy
word, we may embrace and for ever hold fast the
hope of everlasting life, which you have given us in
our Saviour Jesus Christ, who is alive and reigns
with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God,
now and for ever.
Amen
