May we shew by our lives that thou art our Father.
Grant that we may love thee with all our hearts and minds, and souls and strength.
O that we may glorify thy name by walking before thee in righteousness and true holiness, all our days.
May the end of all our designs and actions, be thy glory O God.
But Ah! how little have we done to promote thy glory!
God be merciful unto us. Glorify thine own name O God, by saving such miserable sinners as we are, and ever have been, since we were born.
“ Let thy Kingdom come.”
Do thou O king of saints, establish thy kingdom of grace in our hearts, may we be thy
subjects out of choice, and ever yield thee willing obedience.
O that thy holy spirit may direct and rule our hearts; subdue in us all pride and covetousness, hatred, malice, lust and all uncleanness, and whatever shall offend thee. May thy kingdom be set up in ever heart.
Bless the pious, endeavours of all those who strive to propagate the gospel of Christ ; and may its saving truths be received in all the world.
“Thy will be done on earth as it is in hea"ven.” .. As thy angels above do perfectly perform thy will, so may we below, as far as the frailty of our nature will allow. '
May thy will, revealed to us in thy holy word, be the rule of our will, of our desires, of our words and actions.

may ever study to know thy will, that we may know how to please thee.

“ And forgive us our trespasses, as we for"give those who trespass against us.”

May we remember thy goodness, thy patience, thy mercy towards us, and the multitude of our offences against thee, that we may from our hearts forgive all that have offended us..
