The Family being met together, let the Master say the following Sentence of Scripture, and then that which is written after the said Sentence.

O LORD, correct me, but with judgment; not in thine anger, lest thou bring me to nothing. Jeremiah, x. 24. Psalm, vi. 1.1

It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God: he shall pour down rain upon the sinners, snares, fire and brimstone, storm and tempest; this shall be their portion to drink. Therefore, beloved, take we heed betime, while the day of salvation lasteth : for the night cometh when none can work."

b Commination,

Let us pray

| The Confession, to be said by the Mas

ter and Family, all kneeling. ALMIGHTY God, Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Maker of all things, Judge of all men; We acknowledge and bewail our manifold sins and wickedness, Which we, from time to time, most grievously have committed, By thought, word, and deed, Against thy Divine Majesty, Provoking most justly thy wrath and indignation against us. We do earnestly repent, And are heartily sorry for these our misdoings ; The remembrance of them is grievous unto us; The burden of them is intolerable. Have mercy upon us, Have mercy upon us, most merciful Father; For thy Son, our Lord Jesus Christ's sake, Forgive us all that is past; And grant that we may ever hereafter Serve and please thee In newness of life, To the honour and glory of thy name ; Through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.

• The Communion.

Prayer for God's Forgiveness and Bounty.

Almighty and everlasting God, who art always more ready to hear than we to pray, and art wont to give more than either we desire or deserve; Pour down upon us the abundance of thy mercy; forgiving us those things whereof our conscience is afraid; and giving us those good things which we are not worthy to ask, but through the merits and mediation of Jesus Christ, thy Son, our Lord. Amen.

1 Then let the Master and Family say

the Lord's Prayer with a loud Voice.

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, and the power, and the glory, For ever and ever. Amen.
