Prayer: Southwell Litany (by George Ridding)

O God, we ask you to give us knowledge of ourselves, our powers and weaknesses, our spirit, our sympathy, our imagination, our knowledge, our truth. Teach us by the standard of your Word, by the judgments of others, by examinations of ourselves. Give us earnest desire to strengthen ourselves continually by study, by diligence, by prayer and meditation; and from all fancies, delusions, and prejudices of habit, or temper, or society, save us and help us.
