Imatges de pÓgina

particularly, O Lord, give me an interest in the blood of that immaculate Lamb Jefus Chrift; and grant that I may never render thofe fufferings, which he underwent for finners, ineffectual to the falvation of my foul. And give me grace feriously to confider that it is my indif penfable duty to forfake every evil way.

Poffefs my foul with juft and lively apprehenfions of the infinite difproportion there is between this world and the next; and that I may make a right ufe and improvement of all thofe gracious opportunities which thou art pleased to give me of working out my falvation, and fecuring an inheritance in that kingdom, which is to laft for ever. Let no temptations or allurement divert me from fecuring the interefts of my precious foul.

Grant that i may fo país through things temporal, that I finally lofe not the things eternal; and that in all the concernments of this life, I may govern myself by the rules of temperance and fobriety, justice and honefty, prudence and moderation, .and with an entire truft and dependence on thy fatherly care and good providence; that having always before my eyes that great account which I must one day give, I may never dare to do any thing that may difhonour thy name: nor be fo wretch

wretchedly foolish, as to purchase any happiness in this world at the expenfe of thy favour.

Enable me to make thy laws the rule of all my actions, that I may approve myself to thee as becometh thy fervant; by being zealous and devout in thy fervice, kind and charitable toward my neighbour; by being meek and patient, quiet and peaceable, humble and inoffenfive toward all men; and, as far as in me lies, ufeful and beneficial to the world; that fo glorifying thee here upon earth, I may, at my departure hence, enter into the joy of my Lord, and be for ever glorified in thy heavenly kingdom. To this end,


I pray thee give me grace to make a right ufe and improvement of all thy mercies, and vouchfafe, O Lord, to continue to me thy grace, favour, and protection. Be thou pleafed in thy great goodness, to take me, and all that belongs to me, this night, under the care of thy good providence; defend us from all perils and dangers; and, after the comfortable refreshments of reft and fleep, raife us up in health and safety, with hearts full of love to thee, and zeal to thy fervice, that we may in the last day be raised to life immortal, through Jefus Chrift our Lord! in whofe words I pray unto thee, faying, Our Father, 5°C.
