may not stumble; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Here may be introduced any other subject for
Supplication.

Give ear, O Lord, unto our prayer. Keep us now and always in Thy faith and fear; and so cleanse our conscience, we beseech Thee, by the daily visitation of Thy grace, that when Thy Son our Lord shall come, He may find us fit for His appearing, and ready to meet Him in the company of all His saints. These our prayers we present before Thee through Jesus Christ, in whose name and words we pray:

The Lord's Prayer.

(To be said by both Minister and Congregation.)

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: For Thine is the kingdom, the power, and the glory, for ever and ever. Amen.

Here, and at the end of all the other Prayers, the
Congregation say AMEN.

II.

The Apostles' Creed.

I

BELIEVE in God the Father Almighty,
Maker of heaven and earth:

And in Jesus Christ His only Son our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried: He descended into hell; the third day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven, and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence He shall come to judge the quick and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Ghost; the holy Catholic Church; the communion of saints; the forgiveness of sin; the resurrection of the body; and the life everlasting. Amen.

The Lord be with you:
And with thy spirit.

Then, the Congregation kneeling, the Minister shall say

Let us Pray.

Intercessions,

O God, who hast taught us, by Thy holy apostle, that we should make supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks for

all men, mercifully hear the petitions which we offer to Thee on their behalf.

O Thou God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, whom Thou hast exalted to be Head over all, cause Thy blessing, we beseech Thee, to rest upon the Church, which He has purchased with His most precious blood. Illuminate her ministers with true knowledge, and understanding of Thy Word. Send down the healthful dew of Thy grace upon all her congregations. Deliver her from false doctrine, heresy, and schism; and clothe her with the beauty of holiness and peace. Reveal Thy glory among all nations; and bring in speedily the full victory of Thine everlasting kingdom; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Almighty God, King of kings and Lord of lords, from whom proceedeth all power and dominion in heaven and on earth, most heartily we beseech Thee to look with favour upon her most sacred Majesty Queen Victoria, Albert Edward Prince of Wales, the Princess of Wales, and all the members of the Royal Family.

Imbue all in authority with the spirit of wisdom, goodness, and truth, and so rule their hearts and bless their endeavours, that law and order, justice and peace, may everywhere prevail.

Preserve us from public calamities; from

pestilence and famine; from war, privy conspiracy, and rebellion; and from all national sins and corruptions. Make us strong and great in the fear of God, and in the love of righteousness; so that, being blessed of Thee, we may become a blessing to all nations, to the praise of the glory of Thy grace; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

O God, the Creator and Preserver of all mankind, we implore Thy mercy in behalf of all sorts and conditions of men, that it may please Thee to visit them with Thy most compassionate help, according to their manifold necessities and wants. Especially we beseech Thee to show pity upon all widows and orphans, upon all prisoners and captives, upon all sick and dying persons, upon all who are desolate and afflicted, and upon all who are persecuted for righteousness' sake [and upon any such known to ourselves, whom we name in our hearts before Thee]. Enable them to look unto Thee, O most merciful Father, and to call upon Thy name, that they may find Thee a present Saviour in their affliction and distress; and let it please Thee to deliver them, and raise them up in due time, giving them patience under all their sufferings, the rich comfort of Thy grace here below, and eternal rest with Thee in heaven; through our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
