Offertory Prayer, India, BCP 1960


An Offertory Prayer from the 1960 Book of Common Prayer of the Anglican Church of India, Pakistan, Burma, and Ceylon:

Then shall the Priest say:

Let us pray.

                       All things come of thee, 
                       and of thine own do we give unto thee, 
                       O Creator of the world, 
                       who art ever adored by the holy Angels. 
                       We humbly beseech thee to accept at our hands 
                       these (alms and) oblations, 
                       which we present at thy Holy Table, 
                       and with them the offering of ourselves 
                       to the service of thy Divine Majesty; 
                       through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.

The People may say this Prayer with the Priest.
