Regimental Collect and Prayer of The Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire Light Infantry
COLLECT The Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire Light Infantry
Lord Jesus Christ, Who has taught us by Thy holy Apostle that the powers that be are ordained of God, add we pray Thee, to the old and new fellowship of The Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire Light Infantry the spirit of discipline and self-control, that we may ever be brave in danger and patient in suffering, after Thy example, who art with the Father, and the Holy Ghost our God, world without end. Amen.
PRAYER The Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire Light Infantry
Almighty God, our heavenly Father, bless we pray Thee our Regiment. We thank Thee for the good example set by those who have gone before. We praise Thee for the honour and tradition inherited from the Past. We remember with gratitude those who have fallen in the service of the Regiment. Guide and counsel those in authority with wisdom and understanding. Prosper our work and every worthy enterprise; and may the common ties of loyalty and devotion strengthen our comradeship together. Make us persevering and enable us to show the cheerful infection of a good courage. So in proud thanksgiving may we hand on the good name of our Regiment to those who follow after; and this we ask in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
