I've been tagged!

I've been Tagged! Patricia over at Classical Education Our Way tagged me with this book meme. Here is what I am suppose to do...

Book Meme

Rules:
Pick up the nearest book (of at least 123 pages).
Open the book to page 123.
Find the fifth sentence.
Post the next three sentences.
Tag five people.

Well, I reached over to the end table and found The Book of Common Prayer. Here is what is listed on page 123 (and carried over to 124)


A Collect for Aid against Perils
Be our light in darkness, O Lord, and in your great mercy defend us from all perils and dangers of this night; for the love of your only Son, our Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.


A Collect for Protection
O God, the life of all who live, the light of the faithful, the strength of those who labor, and the repose of the dead: We thank you for the blessings of the day that is past, and humbly ask for your protection through the coming night. Bring us into safety to the morning hours; through him who died and rose again for us, your Son our Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.


I know I went over the "next 3 sentence" rule, but I couldn't leave the prayer open ended like that.

So, who are the lucky ones I am going to tag? Zelda at Aquitaine Academy, Lori at Carr Homeschool, Audrey at Home Learning Adventures, Amy at Allen Academy, and Kara at A Day in the Life. Please be sure to check in on them and see what they are reading. Until next time...

Hey! You're right...this probably is the jump start I need! Thanks and look for my post in the morning! I have to get caught up on your blog.

I've never read the Book of Common Prayer. I'll have to get a copy to read through to accompany my study of prayer in Scripture.

I was actually coming over to tag you for this meme. LOL You can see my answer here if you are interested.

I always have 2 books on my nightstand. The Book of Common Prayer and what ever book I am reading at the time. Since, you chose The Book of Common Prayer. I chose my current book Sense and Sensibility. Thanks for sharing the fun.
