Prayers Ancient and Modern 11/16

O Merciful Lord God, O Lord most merciful, so replenish us with grace that, whatever else may be hidden from us, we may always, everywhere, and in all things, discern Thy mercy. For if being Truth Thou canst not deny Thyself, neither being Love canst Thou be other than Thyself. In which Thine unchangeableness, grant us quiet hearts, assurance of holy hope, peace, patient confidence of love. For Jesus Christ’s sake—Amen.

Christina G. Rossetti.

O Lord, who hast taught us that all our doings without charity are nothing worth, send Thy Holy Spirit and pour into our hearts that most excellent gift of charity, the very bond of peace and of all virtues, without which whosoever liveth is counted dead before Thee. Grant this for Thine only Son Jesus Christ’s sake—Amen.

Book of Common Prayer, A.D. 1549.
