A Prayer of Sir Francis Drake (1540-1596)

Lord God, when you call your servants to endeavour any great matter,
grant us also to know that it is not the beginning, but the continuing of the same,
until it be thoroughly finished, which yields the true glory;
through him who, for the finishing of your work,
laid down his life for us,
our Redeemer, Jesus Christ.
