Prayer Of Thanksgiving (NHC VI, 7)

PRAYER OF THANKSGIVING (NHC VI, 7)

A Coptic of a prayer found in Greek in a magical papyrus (P. Mimaut) and in Latin at the end of the tractate Asclepius (41b). Its incipit (“This is the prayer that they spoke”) suggests that it has been excerpted from a larger work.

The scribe of probably inserted this prayer here that it was a suitable conclusion to the preceding tractate, The Discourse on the Eighth and Ninth (NHC VI, 6). This prayer, in Greek in Egypt, probably in the second century, was presumably used in conventicles.
