Anglican Patrimony: A Prayer of Jeremy Taylor


O God, 
who hast called us to open our hand,
and thou wouldest fill it,
and we would not;
open thou not only our hand,
but our heart also;
that we may know nothing but thee,
count all things lost in comparison of thee,
and endeavour to be made like unto thee;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Jeremy Taylor
A.D. 1613-1667
