“A Prayer for Time”

posted in: Poems | 0

While reading the beautiful prayers of Thomas Cramner in the Book of Common Prayer, I decided to try writing in his style.

A Prayer for Time

 Almighty and Most Merciful God, 
who holdest all time in thy hands, 
and bestowest it bountifully upon thy children, 
Grant that we be not greedy for time, nor wasteful of it. 
Teach us to number our days, 
that we may spend our minutes joyfully 
in the work thou preparedst for us, 
to the honour of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.
