Kindle, We Pray

Kindle, We Pray June 2, 2014

I saw this prayer on Reddit, with the headline “Kindle, we pray, in every heart the true love of peace…”:

 

Morning Prayer: For Peace:

Almighty God, kindle, we pray, in every heart the true love of peace, and guide with your wisdom those who take counsel for the nations of the earth, that in tranquillity your dominion may increase until the earth is filled with the knowledge of your love; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

What does it say about our evolving language usage that for a second I thought this was a prayer to the Kindle?
