Prayers Ancient and Modern 04/11

Give strength, O Lord, to those who seek Thee, and continually pour into their souls the holy desire of seeking Thee; that they who long to see Thy face may not crave the world’s pernicious pleasure—Amen.

Mozarabic, before A. D. 700.

Most gracious GOd, who governest the world with infinite wisdom and goodness, teach me contentedly to submit to the dispensations of Thy Providence, how contrary soever they may be to flesh and blood. Thou knowest the surest ways of making me happy, and art infinite in lovingkindness and mercy; therefore let Thy blessed will in everything be my choice and satisfaction. Let all my dangers awaken me to a careful performance of my duty; that I may serve Thee quietly with a devout mind, through Jesus Christ—Amen.

Robert Nelson (1656-1715)
