Lord, lift thou up the light of thy countenance
upon us.

Blessed are they that hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled St. Matt. v. 6.

For we have not a high priest that cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but one that hath been in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore draw near with boldness unto the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy,

and

may find grace to help us in time of need. Heb. iv. 14-16.

If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask Him. St. Luke xi. 13.
