Prayers Ancient and Modern 12/09

O God, the Father of Lights, from whom cometh down every good and perfect gift; mercifully look upon our frailty and infirmity, and grant us such health of body as Thou knowest to be needful for us; that, both in our bodies and souls, we may evermore serve Thee with all our strength and might; through Jesus Christ our Lord—Amen.

Private Devotions, 1560.

O God our Father, who dost exhort us to pray, and who dost grant what we ask, if only, when we ask, we live a better life; hear me, who am trembling in this darkness, and stretch forth Thy hand unto me; hold forth Thy light before me; recall me from my wanderings; and, Thou being my Guide, may I be restored to myself and to Thee, through Jesus Christ—Amen.

St. Augustine (354–430).
