Page 11 - HEAR us, Almighty and most merciful God and Saviour ; extend thy accustomed goodness to this thy servant, who is grieved with sickness.

Page 26 - IN thee, O Lord, have I put my trust; let me never be put to confusion; deliver me in thy righteousness.
Page 31 - Almighty God, and merciful Father, to whom alone belong the issues of life and death ; look down from heaven, we humbly beseech thee, with the eyes of mercy upon this child, now lying upon the bed of sickness : visit him, 0 Lord, with thy salvation ; deliver him in thy good appointed time from his bodily pain, and save his soul for thy mercies...
Page 44 - My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of Him : for whom the Lord loveth He chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom He receiveth.

Amen.
