In the days of childhood and youth, in the midst of weakness, blindness and danger thou hast protected us, amidst afflictions of mind and body, (and estate,) thou hast supported us, and amidst vanity and wickedness thou hast spared us. Grant us so to acknowledge thy goodness, and so to remember thy gifts, that every day which thou shalt yet allow us, may be employed in the amendment of our lives, and in the diligent discharge of all our duties; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

LORD, from whom all good things do come; Grant to us thy humble servants, that by thy holy inspiration we may think those things that be good, and by thy merciful guiding may perform the same; through our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.

ALMIGHTY God, who alone canst order the unruly wills and affections of sinful men; Grant unto thy people, that they may love the thing which thou commandest, and desire that which thou dost promise; that so among the sundry and manifold changes of the world, our hearts may surely there be

fixed where true joys are to be found. Give us grace to mortify all worldly and carnal lusts, to cast away the works of darkness, and to walk before thee in pureness of living and truth: And because the frailty of man without thee cannot but fall, keep us ever by thy help from all things hurtful, and lead us to all things profitable to our salvation. Look, we beseech thee O Lord, upon the hearty desires of thy humble servants, and stretch forth the right hand of thy Majesty, to be our defence against all our enemies; that by thy great goodness we may be governed and preserved evermore, both in body and soul; through Jesus Christ our Saviour. Amen.

LORD, we pray thee, that thy grace may always prevent and follow us, and make us continually to be given to all good works. And seeing that we put not our trust in any thing that we do, mercifully grant, that, by thy power, we may be defended against all adversity; through Jesus Christ our Lord.


GOD, the king of glory, who hast exalted thine only Son Jesus Christ with great

triumph unto thy kingdom in heaven; We beseech thee, leave us not comfortless; but send to us thine Holy Ghost to comfort us, and exalt us unto the same place whither our Saviour Christ is gone before, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Ghost, one God, world without end. Amen.

Our Father which art in heaven, &c.
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, &c.


Preserve me, O God: for in thee have I put

my trust.



HE Lord is my Shepherd: therefore can
I lack nothing.

2 He shall feed me in a green pasture: and lead me forth beside the waters of comfort.

3 He shall convert my soul and bring me forth in the paths of righteousness, for his Name's sake.

4 Yea, though I walk through the valley

of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil : for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff comfort me.

5 Thou shalt prepare a table before me against them that trouble me: thou hast anointed my head with oil, and my cup shall be full.

6 But thy loving-kindness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son: and to the Holy Ghost;

As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be: world without end. Amen.

Let us pray.

LORD, we beseech thee favourably to

hear the prayers of thy people; that we, who for our evil deeds do worthily deserve to be punished, by the comfort of thy grace may mercifully be relieved. Deal not with us after our sins, neither reward us after our iniquities. Spare us, and let us not be brought to confusion. Lift up the light of thy countenance upon us, and give us peace; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

GOD, who art the author of peace and lover of concord, in knowledge of whom standeth our eternal life, whose service is perfect freedom, defend us thy humble servants in all assaults of our enemies, that we, surely trusting in thy defence, may not fear the power of any adversaries, through the might of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.


GOD, the protector of all that trust in thee, without whom nothing is strong, nothing is holy; Increase and multiply upon us thy mercy; that thou being our ruler and guide, we may so pass through things temporal, that we finally lose not the things eternal: Grant this, O heavenly Father, for Jesus Christ's sake our Lord. Amen.

RANT, O Lord, we beseech thee, that


the course of this world may be so peaceably ordered by thy governance, that thy Church may be preserved in all godly quietness; and through thy protection, being free from all adversities, may devoutly serve thee in good works, to the glory of thy Name; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
