A Prayer for the Feast Day of Lancelot Andrewes

Posted by Kendall Harmon

Almighty God, who gavest thy servant Lancelot Andrewes the gift of thy holy Spirit and made him a man of prayer and a faithful pastor of thy people: Perfect in us what is lacking of thy gifts, of faith, to increase it, of hope, to establish it, of love, to kindle it, that we may live in the life of thy grace and glory; through Jesus Christ thy Son our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the same Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

Kevin at Ohio Anglican linked today to the private prayer book of Andrewes.  I checked out the prayers for the first day and found them surprising, and rather helpful:

I will lay me down in peace
and take my rest:
for it is Thou Lord only
that makest me dwell in safety.
Into Thy hands, O Lord,
I commend my spirit,
for Thou hast redeemed me,
O Lord Thou God of Truth.
Amen.

From the link in #1 the Intercession of Lancelot Andrewes for the second day:

For the Catholic Church,
its establishment and increase;

for the Eastern,
its deliverance and union;

for the Western,
its adjustment and peace;

for the British,
the supply of what is wanting in it,
the strengthening of what remains in it;
for the episcopate, presbytery, Christian people

Amen
