Prayers Ancient and Modern 08/26

O Lord, the Author and Persuader of peace, love, and good-will, soften our hard and steely hearts, warm our icy and frozen hearts, that we may wish well to one another, and may be the true disciples of Jesus Christ. And give us grace even now to begin to show forth that heavenly life, wherein there is no disagreement nor hatred, but peace and love on all hands, one towards another—Amen.

Ludovicus Vives, A.D. 1578.

By that forgiving tenderness, O Lord, wherewith Thou didst ever wait for me; by that tender love wherewith, whenever I wandered, Thou watchest over me; by Thine infinite love, wherewith Thou wiliest that I should love Thee eternally; give me love like Thine, that I may forgive, compassionate, love like Thee—Amen.

E. B. Pusey.
