Prayers Ancient and Modern 09/02

O Lord, give us grace, I pray Thee, so to realize Thine almighty succor pledged to us, Thy protecting Presence surrounding us, Thine all-seeing eye fixed upon us, Thy Divine heart yearning over us, that we may cease to tremble at man’s anger, or shrink from man’s ridicule; but may with a good courage perform the work Thou givest us to do, and after we have suffered may enter into rest—Amen.

Christina G. Rossetti.

O Heavenly Father, the Author and Fountain of all truth, the bottomless Sea of all understanding, send, we beseech Thee, Thy Holy Spirit into our hearts, and lighten our understandings with the beams of Thy heavenly grace. We ask this, O merciful Father, for Thy dear Son, our Saviour, Jesus Christ’s sake—Amen.

Nicholas Ridley (1500–1555).
