Almighty God, who hast promised to hear the petitions of them that ask in thy Son's Name, we beseech thee mercifully to incline thine ears to us that have made now our prayers and supplications unto thee; and grant that those things which we have faithfully asked, according to thy will, may effectually be obtained, to the relief of our necessity, and to the setting forth of thy glory, through Jesus Christ our Lord.

· Now unto him that is able to do exceding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us; unto him be glory in the Church by Christ Jesus, throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.


O God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort, hearken, we beseech thee, to the supplications of thy people.
