Almighty God, who gavest thy servant Lancelot Andrewes the gift of thy holy Spirit and made him a man of prayer and a faithful pastor of thy people: Perfect in us what is lacking of thy gifts, of faith, to increase it, of hope, to establish it, of love, to kindle it, that we may live in the life of thy grace and glory; through Jesus Christ thy Son our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the same Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
Today we remember Lancelot Andrewes, Bishop of Winchester and spiritual writer, who was designated by the King to oversee the translation of the King James Bible. Engraving by John Payne, 1632 [Prints 10/001] pic.twitter.com/huJDHq581l
