Take our minds

A wonderful prayer by Archbishop of Canterbury Donald Coggan, who I had the pleasure of meeting many years ago when he was visiting Washington, DC.  A wonderful man, so kind and hospitable to me.

Take our minds, and think through them.

Take our lips, and speak through them.

Take our hearts, and set them on fire with love for thee.

What we know not, teach us.

What we have not, give us.

What we are not, make us.

For Jesus sake.


A prayer by Donald Coggan (1909-2000), who became Archbishop of Canterbury in 1974. From "Give us Grace: An Anthology of Anglican Prayers" compiled by Christopher Webber, Morehouse, 2004
