light of His Countenance upon us, and give us peace, now and for evermore. Amen.

thy of the least of all Thy mercies; we have sinned against Heaven and before Thee, and are no more worthy to be called Thy children. [Pause, and call to mind wherein you have sinned.] We do earnestly repent, and are heartily sorry for these our misdoings. Have mercy upon us, O LORD, have mercy upon us, and forgive us for JESUS CHRIST's sake, and bring us to everlasting life. Amen.

1 On Sunday first say :

Almighty and everlasting GoD, Heavenly FATHER, we give Thee humble thanks, for that Thou hast vouchsafed to call us to the knowledge of Thy grace, and faith in Thee: increase this knowledge, and confirm this faith in us evermore. Renew in us Thy HOLY SPIRIT, that as we have been, in Holy Baptism, born again and made heirs of everlasting salvation, through our LORD JESUS CHRIST, we may continue Thy servants, and attain Thy promises; through the same LORD JESUS CHRIST Thy SON, Who liveth and reigneth with Thee, in the unity of the same HOLY SPIRIT, everlastingly.

On Friday:


Almighty God, we beseech Thee graciously to behold this Thy family, for which our LORD JESUS CHRIST was contented to be betrayed, and given up into the hands of wicked men, and to suffer death upon the Cross, Who now liveth and reigneth with Thee and the HOLY GHOST, ever one GOD, world without end.

Visit, we beseech Thee, O LORD, this habitation, and drive far from it all snares of the enemy; let Thy Holy Angels dwell herein, to preserve us in peace, and let Thy Blessing be upon us for ever; through JESUS CHRIST our LORD. Amen.
