I THANKSGIVING for a Woman after Child-birth. O

FATHER of Mercies, and God of all Comfort,

We present unto Thee our unfeigned Thanks, for that Thou haft vouchsafed to deliver thine Handmaid from the

great Pain and Peril of Child- birth: It was thy Power that preserved her, thy Goodness that redeemed her, and thy Hand that supported her, when Pangs and Sorrow laid hold upon her: Praised therefore be that infinite Love, which moved Thee to deal so graciously with thy Servant, to turn her Sorrow into Joy, her Anguish into Ease and Refreshment. Continue, We beseech Thee, thy fatherly Kindness to her; let thy good Providence still watch over and defend her. Preserve Root and Branch before Thee, and take the tender Infant into thy powerful Protection. Grant, O moft merciful Father, that the Parents may never be wanting in their Duty towards this their Offspring, but may they be enabled by thy Grace to bring it up in the Nurture and Admonition of the Lord, that as it grows in Years, it may grow in Favor with God and Man, and, being filled with the Graces of thy holy Spirit, may be of the Number of thy faithful Servants, and finally received in to thine everlasting Kingdom, through the Mediation of Jesus Christ, thine only Son our Lord. Amen.
