Morning Collect: Henry Martyn

O God of the nations, you gave your faithful servant Henry Martyn a brilliant mind, a loving heart, and a gift for languages, that he might translate the Scriptures and other holy writings for the peoples of India and Persia: Inspire in us a love like his, eager to commit both life and talents to you who gave them; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen

I like the photo you used for the collect. What is it of?
Thanks, Br Thomas. This is an architectural detail from the Hindu Temple of Atlanta (actually in Riverdale, Georgia). It was on the ceiling of a porch.
