A PRAYER FOR THE LORD'S-DAY EVENING.

O GRACIOUS Lord, let a little child bless thee, that while many children have been directed by their ungodly parents to profane thy Sabbath, by turning it into a day of vanity and pleasure, I have been taken to attend thy sacred worship.

O, forgive me that I thought so little of praise and prayer, and of hearing thy word, while I was in thy house. As I grow

older may I grow wiser and better, and love thy service more and more; till at last I

may

be brought to serve thee and to love thee for the redemption of a sinful world, and for thy mercies to a most unworthy child, through Jesus Christ, our Lord and Saviour.

A PRAYER

THAT A CHILD MAY SAY BEFORE THE LORD

AT ANY TIME,

BUT ESPECIALLY WHEN HIS HEART IS BROKEN FOR SIN.

O

MOST merciful and compassionate Lord, look down in love and pity upon me thy poor child. Pardon me, who, though so young, has been so vile a sinner in thy sight. Give me a weeping eye, and a broken heart, for all my transgressions : and for the sake of Jesus Christ, let not my sins be my eternal ruin.

As thou, by thy good Spirit, canst change the hearts of fallen sinners, so wilt thou change my heart, and fill me with love to thy dear name, that I may delight in all thy commandments, and live in thy fear from day to day.

Teach me to remember that thou hast an eye that can see all that I do. O, help me to look up unto thee, and keep me from sin, that I may be kept from the just punishment sin deserves.

0, dear Saviour, thou wast wounded for our transgressions, and thou didst suffer the painful death

upon

the cross to save me from eternal death; grant me thy grace, that I may love thee with all my heart, for the love thou hast shewn towards me; and may be enabled to live to thy praise and glory for

Amen.

evermore.

The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Ghost, be with us all evermore. Amen.

FINIS.
