assist our prayers that we make before thee, in all our troubles and adversities, whensoever they oppress us. And graciously hear us, that those evils which the craft and subtilty of the devil or man worketh against us, be brought to nought; and by the providence of thy goodness they may be dispersed; that we, thy servants, being hurt by no persecutions, may evermore give thanks unto thee, in thy holy Church, through Jesus Christ our Lord.

We humbly beseech thee, O Father, mercifully to look upon our infirmities; and for the glory of thy Name, turn from us all those evils that we most righteously have deserved. And grant that in all our troubles, we may put our whole trůst and confidence in thy mercy, and evermore serve thee in holiness and pureness of living, to thy honour and glory, through our only Mediator and Advocate, Jesus Christ our Lord. · Our Father, which art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name; thy kingdom come; thy will be done in earth as it is in heaven. Give us, this day, our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive them that trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.–O Lord, raise up (we pray thee) thy power, and come among us, and with great might succour us; that whereas, through our sins and wickedness, we are sore let and hindered in running the race that is set before us, thy bountiful grace and mercy may speedily help and deliver us, through the satisfaction of thy Son our Lord; to whom with thee

O LORD, the great and dreadful God, who keepest covenant and mercy for them that love thee, and observe thy commandments; we have sinned against thee, and committed iniquity, and done wickedly. O Lord, righteousness belongeth unto thee, but unto us confusion of face. But thou art a God ready to pardon, gracious and full of compassion, slow to anger, and of great kindness.
