(in part from text written by Dr. Wesley Carr,
Dean of Westminster)
The first monks at Westminster Abbey belonged to the Benedictine Order. Their lives were devoted to worship, prayer, hospitality and study. One thousand years later their successors, the Dean and Chapter of Westminster, seek to live by the same ideals.
God may be addressed at any time and in any words but the discipline of certain times and particular words often helps. A simple prayer, attributed to St. Benedict.
O gracious and holy Father,
Give us wisdom to perceive you,
Diligence to seek you,
Patience to wait for you,
Eyes to behold you,
A heart to meditate on you,
And a life to proclaim you;
Through the power of the
Spirit of Jesus Christ our Lord.
