PREFACE.

OUR aim in the present volume has been simplicity of language, and directness of supplication. Feeling also that weariness too often accompanies the act of Family Worship, we have carefully observed a more than usual brevity in these prayers.

It is humbly hoped that some help may be afforded to those who wish to approach the throne of grace with a single and earnest desire to obtain a blessing.

It will be observed that the prayers arranged for the Fourth Week are clothed more or less in the language of the Liturgy.

May a spirit of grace and of supplication abundantly rest on all who take these words into their lips!
