Praying with N.T. Wright
(This is a prayer from the Church of England that Tom Wright makes his own in The Last Word)
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 they holy Word we may embrace and ever hold fast the blessed hope of everlasting life which thou hast given us in they Son, our Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.
