College Prayer

Blatantly copied from the copy of Fiona Montgomery’s Edge Hill University College – A History 1985-1997 that’s in our office is the Edge Hill College Prayer:

Grant, we beseech Thee, O Lord, to all who have trained in this College, the spirit to think and to to always such things as are rightful, that they, leaning only on Thy Heavenly Grace, may evermore be defended by Thy mightly powerm and in the faithful discharge of the duties of which Thou has called them may adorn the doctrine of God, our Saviour in all things. Grant this, O Lord, for Jesus Christ’s sake.


That Edge Hill had its own prayer at all highlights that it was founded not as a secular teacher training college but as a non-denominational one and that prayers were a key part of the day.
