When we are in error...

From the 1559, or Elizabethan, Book of Common Prayer:
ALMIGHTY God, which showeth to all men that be in error the light of Thy truth, to the intent that they may return into the way of righteousness: Grant unto all them that be admitted into the fellowship of Christ's religion, that they may eschew those things that be contrary to their profession, and follow all such things as be agreeable to the same; through our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen
Collect for the Third Sunday after Easter, Book of Common Prayer, 1559.
