The Collect for Grace
Illuminated manuscript print
10 x 12 & 5/8 inches
Artist: Nancy Wilds
Ms. Wilds writes, "this lovely prayer expresses thanks that we have been brought safely to the beginning of another day, and asks for protection and guidance. The light and airy colors of the castle tower suggest early morning, and the contrast of the rich interior above and the peasants at work below suggests that God's protection is available to all."
This prayer may be found on page 17 of the 1928 Book of Common Prayer.
