swer our supplications, for the sake of Jesus Christ our Saviour. Amen.

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 [or, day by day] our daily bread.

Quesday Morning.

ALMIGHTY GOD, in whom alone

we live, and move, and have our being, graciously accept the prayers and praises with which we would begin another day.

We thank Thee for Thy watchful care over us, and for all Thy bounty towards us. Grant, O Lord, that we may show our thankfulness to Thee, not only with our lips but in our lives, by giving up ourselves to Thy service, and by daily endeavouring to do such things as are pleasing to Thee.

We bless Thee that in Thy holy Word Thou hast made known to us Thy will. Make us to love and prize that Word Forgive our past neglect and

unprofitable use of it. Forgive our want of reverence and faith in reading it. 0 gracious God, by whose inspiration the Scriptures were written, speak through them to our inmost souls. Let them be spirit and life to us. Let them bring to us special messages from heaven. Open Thou our eyes that we may behold wondrous things out of Thy law. And give us a teachable mind, that we may receive with humility what God the Lord shall speak unto us.

Lord, preserve us this day in body and soul. Be pleased to grant us such a measure of health and strength, that we may be enabled rightly to fulfil the duties of our several stations. And do Thou keep our hearts steadfast in Thy fear and love all the day long. Never suffer us to forget that Thou, God, seest us. Hold up our goings in Thy path, that our footsteps slip not. In word and deed may we seek to adorn the doctrine of God our Saviour in all things, and to

prove ourselves His true disciples. May our light so shine before men, that they may see our good works, and glorify Thee our heavenly Father.

Make us also more anxious about the souls of others. Help us this day to be in some measure useful to our fellowmen. May Jesus Christ and His great salvation be so precious to our own souls, that we may be filled with earnest desires to make His love known to all around us.

Bless the Ministers of Thy Church And, O Thou Lord of the harvest, send forth many faithful labourers into Thy harvest. Prosper especially the efforts of all Thy Missionary Servants. Gather from out of heathen lands many who are as sheep without a shepherd. Have mercy upon Thine ancient people Israel. Grant that the veil may be taken from their hearts, so that they may acknowledge Jesus of Nazareth as their Redeemer and their King.

And now, Lord, we commit ourselves to Thy care for the coming day. May we act as in Thy presence, and do all this day to Thy glory.

Hear us, we beseech Thee, for the sake of Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour. Amen.

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.

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