Defend us, if it be thy holy will, from all the designs of evil men, and from every thing terrible and hurtful; and lead us all in the paths of holiness, through thy fatherly goodness and love to mankind, declared by thy Son Jesus Christ our Lord, to whom be glory for ver and ever! Amen. Our Father, &c. TUESDAY. Hannah More. O Lord God Almighty, I bless thee for all the mercies of the past day, and I pray thee now to take me under thy care, and to deliver me from all the perils and dangers of this night. Preserve me, O l-oi-d, both in body and soul, from every evil: tnd keep me from all sinful thoughts when I am about to close my eyes in sleep. And pardon, I beseech thee, all my offences, for the sake of Jesus Christ. I confess, O Lord, that I have this day left undone many things which I ought to have done, and done many things which I ought not to have done. Pardon all my pride and Vanity, my idleness and self-indulgence, my impatience, fretfulness, and discontent. Pardon, O Lord, all the rash and angry words which I have this day spoken, and all the sinful thoughts which have risen up in my mind, and which I have not been careful to resist. And especially, I pray thee, to pardon my forgetfuluess of thee, my God, and my want of gratitude and love to Jesus Christ. For these and all my other sins which from time to time I have committed, I here implore thy pardon and forgiveness, in the name of my most merciful Saviour. And, since I knowthat my life is soshort and uncertain, help me, day by day, to think of my latter end. O Lord, grant me grace so to live, that I may not be afraid to die; and do thou receive my soul at last into thine eternal kingdom....show more
