Prayers from Egbert of York (8th century)

"Lord Jesus Christ, you chose your apostles that they might preside over us as teachers; so also may you teach doctrine to our bishops, who occupy the place of your apostles, and bless and instruct them, that they may preserve their lives unharmed and pure into eternity.  Amen." 
"Look down from heaven, O Lord, upon your flock and your lambs; bless their bodies and their souls; and grant that those who have received the sign of the cross on their foreheads at baptism, may be shown to belong to you on the day of judgement; through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen."
