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

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.
