Oh, give me light to see, a heart to close with, and power to do Thy will, O God—Amen.
Thomas Wilson (1663–1775).

Almighty God, and most merciful Father, give us, we beseech Thee, that grace that we may duly examine the inmost of our hearts, and our most secret thoughts, how we stand before Thee; and that we may henceforward never be drawn to do anything that may dishonor Thy name: but may persevere in all good purposes, and in Thy holy service, unto our lives’ end; and grant that we may now this present day, seeing it is as good as nothing that we have done hitherto, perfectly begin to walk before Thee, as becometh those that are called to an inheritance of light in Christ—Amen.

Hickes’ Devotions, 1700.
