We desire in all our prayers to praise thee, for thou art great, and greatly to be praiseda. We praise thy kingdom, for it is an everlasting kingdom, and endures throughout all generations b, and the sceptre of thy kingdom is a right sceptre: Thou lovest righteousness, and hatest wickedness c: To thee belongeth mercy, and thou renderest to every man according to his works d.

We praise thy power, for thou hast a mighty arm, strong is thy hand, and high is thy right hand, and yet judgment and justice are the habitation of thy throne, and truth shall go before thy face e. We praise thy glory, for the glory of the Lord shall 'endure for ever g. Glory be to the Father, to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost: As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be. O let God be praised in his sanctuary, and praised in the firmament of his power; let him be praised for his mighty acts, and praised according to his excellent greatness. Let every thing that hath breath praise the Lord h. Hallelujah.

And forasmuch as we know that he heareth us, and whatsoever we ask, according to his will, in faith we have the petitions that we desired of him i, we will triumph in his praise k. Now know we that the Lord heareth his anointed I, and for his sake will hear us from his holy heaven, with the saving strength of his right hand; and therefore in token not only of our desire, but of our assurance to be heard in Christ's name, we say, Amen, Amen.

Our Father which art in heaven, hallowed be thy name, &c.

Who is a God like unto thee, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders ?

Whom have I in heaven but thee? And there is none upon earth that I desire besides thee. When my flesh and my

heart fail, thou art the strength of my heart, and portion for ever.

Thou madest me for thyself, to show forth thy praise.

But I am a sinner; I was shapen in iniquity, and in sin did my mother conceive me.

God be merciful to me a sinner.

Lord give me a new nature. Let Jesus Christ be formed in my soul, that to me to live may be Christ, and -to die may be gain.

Lord, I was in my baptism given up to thee: receive me graciously, and love me freely.

Lord Jesus, thou hast encouraged little children to come to thee, and hast said, that of such is the kingdom of God; I come to thee;: O make me a faithful subject of thy kingdom, take me up in thy arms, put thy hands upon me, and bless me.

O give me grace to redeem me from all iniquity, and particularly from the vanity which childhood and youth is subject to.

latter end. O Lord, I thank thee for all thy mercies to me; for life and health, food and raiment, and for my education ; for my creation, preservation, and all the blessings of this life: but above all for thine inestimable love, in the means of grace, and the hopes of glory.

Thanks be to God for his unspeakable gift; blessed be God for JESUS CHRIST. Ņone but Christ, none but Christ for me.

Now to God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, that great name into which I was baptized, be honour and glory, dominion and praise, for ever and ever. Amen.
