Excerpts from pages 587 to 582


"We, thy needy creatures render thee our humble praise, for the preservation of us from the beginning of our lives to this day"
"And since it is of thy mercy, O gracious Father, that another day is added to our lives, We here dedicate both our souls and bodies to thee and to thy service, do thou merciful God,  confirm and strengthen us that we may grow in grace and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ"


"But, O God, who knowest the weakness and corruption of our nature, and the manifold temptations which we daily meet: We humbly beseech thee to have compassion on our infirmities, and to give us the constant assistance of thy Holy Spirit;  that we may be effectually restrained from sin, and incited to to our duty. Imprint upon our hearts such a dread of thy judgments, and such a grateful sense of thy goodness to us, as may make us both afraid and ashamed to offend thee.


"Direct us in all our ways, Defend us from all dangers and adversities, and be graciously pleased to take us and all who are dear to us, under thy fatherly care and protection."


"We come before thee in an humble sense of our own unworthiness, acknowledging our manifold transgressions of thy righteous laws. ( *Here make a short pause, to confess the sins and failings of the day ) But, O gracious Father, who desirest not the death of a sinner, look upon us, we beseech thee, in mercy and forgive us all our transgressions."
"Reform whatever is amiss in the temper and disposition of our souls, that no unclean thoughts, unlawful designs, or  desires may rest there."
"And accept, O Lord, our intercessions for all mankind. Reward all who have done us good, and pardon all those who have done or wish us evil, and give them repentance and better minds. Be merciful to all who are in any trouble, and do thou the God of pity, administer to them according to their several necessities"


"To our prayers, O Lord, we join our unfeigned thanks for all they mercies, for our being, our reason and all other endowments and faculties of soul and body; for our health, friends, food and raiment and all the other comforts of life. And above all, we adore thy mercy in sending they only Son into the world, to redeem us from sin and eternal death, and in giving us the knowledge and sense of our duty towards thee. Give us grace to show our thankfulness in a sincere obedience to His laws, through whose merits and intercession we received them all, they Son our Saviour Jesus Christ."


"In particular, we beseech thee to continue thy gracious protection to us, defend us from  all dangers and mischiefs, and from the fear of them and grant us grace always to live in such a state that we may never be afraid to die, so that, in living and dying. we may be thine, in the name of thy Son Christ Jesus."


" May the Love of God, the Mercy of Jesus Christ AND the Power of His Holy Spirit be with us this day and every day?  Amen
