A Prayer for the Feast Day of Tabitha (Dorcas) of Joppa

Most Holy God, whose servant Tabitha thou didst raise from the dead to display thy power and confirm thy message that thy Son is Lord; grant unto us thy grace, that aided by her prayers and example, we may be given a new life in thy Spirit to do works pleasing in thy sight; Through Jesus Christ thy Son our Lord; who livest and reignest with thee, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

A Prayer to Begin the Day from Daily Prayer

O GOD, the God of all goodness and grace, who art worthy of a greater love than we can either give or understand: Fill our hearts, we beseech thee, with such love towards thee that nothing may seem too hard for us to do or to suffer in obedience to thy will; that so we may become daily more like thee, and dwell more and more in the light of thy presence; through Jesus Christ our Lord.

–adapted from Farnham Hostel (a theological training school from 1899-1915 led by principal Canon B. K. Cunningham) Daily Prayer, Eric Milner-White and G. W. Briggs, eds. (London: Penguin Books 1959 edition of the 1941 original)
