A Prayer for the Divine Assistance. Psal. Ixix. INCLINE unto my aid, O God: O Lord, make haste to help me.

Let them be confounded and ashamed that seek my soul.

Let them be turned backwards, and blush for shame, who desire evils to me.

Let them be presently turned away, blushing for shame, that say to me, It is well, it is well.

Let all who seek thee, rejoice and be glad in thee; and let such as love thy salvation say always, The Lord be magnified.

But I am needy and poor, O God, help me. Thou art my helper and deliverer, O Lord make no delay.

Glory be to the Father, &c.

V. Save thy servants.

R. Trusting in thee, O my God,

V. Be unto us, O Lord, a tower of strength.
R. From the face of the enemy.

V. Let not the enemy prevail against us.

R. Nor the son of iniquity have any power to hurt us.

V. O Lord, deal not with us according to our sins.

R. Neither reward us according to our iniquities.

V. Let us pray for our chief bishop N.

R. Our Lord preserve him, and give him life, and make him blessed upon earth, and deliver him not to the will of his enemies.

V. Let us pray for our benefactors.

R. Vouchsafe, O Lord, for thy name's sake, to reward with eternal life all them who have done us good.

V. Let us pray for the faithful departed.

R. Eternal rest give to them, O Lord; and let perpetual light shine upon them.

V. May they rest in peace. Amen.

R. For our absent brethren.

V. O my God, save thy servants trusting in thee.

R. Send them help, O Lord, from thy holy place.

R. And from Sion protect them.

V. O Lord, hear my prayer.
R. And let my cry come unto thee.


Let us pray.

O God, whose property it is always to have mercy, and to spare, receive our petitions, that we, and all thy servants, who are bound by the chain of sins, may, by the compassion of thy goodness, mercifully be absolved.

HEAR, we beseech the, O Lord, the prayers of thy suppliants, and pardon the sins of them that confess to thee; that of thy bounty thou mayest give us both pardon and peace.

Out of thy clemency, O Lord, shew thy unspeakable mercy to us, that so thou mayest both. acquit us of our sins, and deliver us from the punishments we deserve for them.

O God, who by sin art offended, and by penance: pacified, mercifully regard the prayers of thy people making supplication to thee, and turn away the scourges of thy anger, which we deserve for our sins.

O ALMIGHTY and eternal God, have mercy on thy servant N. our chief bishop, and direct him according to thy clemency in the way of everlasting salvation that by thy grace he may desire those things that are agreeable to thee, and perform them with all his strength.


O GOD, from whom are all holy desires, righteous counsels, and just works, give to thy servants that peace which the world cannot give; that both our hearts may be disposed to keep thy commandments, and the fear of enemies being removed, the times by thy protection may be peaceable.

INFLAME, O Lord, our reins and heart, with the fire of thy holy spirit, that we may serve thee
