Prayers Ancient and Modern 07/25

O Lord, shew forth Thy loving-kindness, I entreat Thee, to all persons who in this world feel themselves neglected, or little loved, or forgotten. Be Thou their beloved Companion, and let communion with Thee be to them more dear than tenderest earthly intercourse. Teach them to discern Thee in all with whom they come in contact, and to love and serve Thee in them. On earth grant them comfort by the repentance of any who have wronged them, and in heaven comfort in the communion of all saints with each other and with Thee—Amen.

Christina G. Rossetti.

Gracious Lord, who apprehendest the sighing of a contrite heart before it be uttered; make us, we beseech Thee, the temple of the Holy Spirit, that we may be defended by the shield of Thy celestial goodness, through Christ our Lord—Amen.

Sarum Breviary, A.D. 1085.
