us; when we are weak encourage us; when we are cast down raise us up.

Intercessions.

GOD, the Father of all mankind, who art good to all, and whose tender mercies are over

all Thy works, hear us as we pray for the wellbeing of all men, beseeching Thee to make Thy way known upon earth, and Thy saving health among all nations.

Bless abundantly, O Lord, the Church of Christ which Thou hast called out of the world, that she might bring the world to Thee; grant to her security and peace, heal her divisions, remove from her all superstition, error, and unbelief, purify her from every stain, and enable her so to follow her blessed Lord that she may abound in good works, and shed over the world the pure light of Christ.

Bless, O Lord, this parish and congregation. Grant that Christ may be manifested in Thy people in this place; as the gospel of peace has entered into their ears, so let all enmity be removed from their hearts and from their conversation; and let them lift up to Thee unceasingly the daily sacrifice of prayer and thankfulness and of good works.

Remember, O Lord, for good all ministers, pastors, and teachers, all who preach the gospel among the heathen, and all who serve Thee in any office in Thy Church.

O Lord, save Thy people:
And bless Thy heritage.
Govern them also:
And lift them up for ever.

O Father of Lights and Fountain of all knowledge, bless, we beseech Thee, all schools, universities, and places of learning, and grant that from them the light of truth may shine with growing brightness on all men, so that wisdom and knowledge may be the stability of our times.

O God, who dost appoint to every man his work, prosper, we pray Thee, the efforts of all who serve Thee in science, art, and letters, and of all those who seek to make the lives of Thy children brighter and happier. And in whatever occupation Thy people serve Thee faithfully, grant them to know that their labour is not in vain in the Lord. Amen.

O Thou by whom kings reign and princes decree justice, we pray Thee to regard with Thy favour all rulers and princes. Bless Thy servant, our sovereign, Queen Victoria; grant that her reign may be holy and peaceable, and save her from all her enemies. Bless Albert Edward Prince of Wales, the Princess of Wales, and all the Royal Family, enduing them plentifully with the grace and virtue befitting their high station. Bless her Majesty's Ministers [the Houses of Parliament now assembled], and all judges and magistrates [especially the magistrates of this town]. Grant to them wisdom and faith, guide their counsels, prosper their rule. Bless, O Lord, the Army and Navy; may it please Thee to sup

port them in all hardships, and to grant them defence and deliverance in all perils. Amen.

We remember before Thee, O Lord, our brethren who are tried with sickness: entreating Thee to increase their faith and patience, to restore them. to health, if it be Thy will, and to give them a happy issue out of all their troubles.

We remember before Thee all physicians, and nurses of the sick, those who have the care of young children, and those who tend the aged and infirm; and we beseech Thee to visit them. with Thy comfort and aid, and to reward them for their work of patience and labour of love.

Have pity on all widows and orphans; succour all who are in danger by sea and land, and have mercy on all prisoners and captives, and on all who are oppressed with labour and toil. Have mercy on those who are tempted, and on those who are in darkness and perplexity, and strengthen them with Thy Holy Spirit. Be present with those who are dying, and grant that they may depart in peace, fearing no evil, and live before Thee in Thy heavenly kingdom.

We remember before Thee with grateful hearts Thy faithful servants who have departed this life in Thy love and fear. We praise and thank Thee for all who have been to us apostles and teachers, for those who have guided and defended us, for those who have loved us and have done us good.
