Date: 29th October 2017
Collect for the day: Blessed Lord, who caused all holy Scriptures to be
written for our learning: help us so to hear them, to read, mark, learn and
inwardly digest them that, through patience, and the comfort of your holy
word, we may embrace and for ever hold fast the hope of everlasting life,
which you have given us in our Saviour Jesus Christ, who is alive and
reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.
Psalm response: Happy are they who walk in the law of the Lord.
