Lord’s Day Prayer – “Hear, read, mark, and learn”

“Blessed Lord, who hast caused all holy Scriptures to be written for our learning; Grant that we may in such wise hear them, read, mark, learn, and inwardly digest them, that by patience and comfort of Thy holy Word, we may embrace, and ever hold fast, the blessed hope of everlasting life, which Thou hast given us in our Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen.”

—“The Collect for the Second Sunday in Advent” in The Book of Common Prayer (Cambridge, UK: Cambridge University Press, 1662/2006), 49.
