may happen to the Body, and from all evil Thoughts that may assault and hurt the Soul.

Extend thy Goodness, O Lord, to the whole Race of Mankind; have Mercy upon all Jews, Turks, Infidels, and Hereticks; take from them all Ignorance, Hardness of Heart, and Contempo of chy Word; and so fetch them home to thy Flock, that they may be saved among the Remnant of the true Ifraelites. Grant unto all them that are admitted into the Fellowship of Christ's Religion, that they may eschew those things that are contrary to their Profession, and follow all such things as are agreeable to the same. Let thy continual Pity cleanle and defend thy Church, and because it cannot continue in Safety without thy Succour, preserve it evermore by thy Help and Goodness. Bless all our Governours both in Church and State, that in their several Stations they may be useful and serviceable to thy Glory, and the publick Good, We make our humble Supplications to thee for all our Benefactors, Friends and Relations, and also for our very Enemies ; let thy fatherly Hand be ever over them, let thy Holy Spirit be ever with them, and so lead them in the Knowledge and Obedience of thy Word, that in the end they may obtain everlaiting Life. Look with an Eye of Pity and Compation upon all those who are any ways afflicted or distrefied in Mind, Body, or Estate, give them Patience under all their Sufferings, and in thy due Time a happy Issue out of all their Amictions.

And as we pray unto thee, O God, for ourselves and others, so we delire to bless and praise thy holy Name for all thy Goodness and Loving Kindness to us and to ail Men. We give

thee

thee hearty Thanks for the Preservation of us the Day past, and the rest of our Lives, froni innumerable Accidents and Dangers, for the Comforts and Conveniencies as well as the New cessaries of Life. But above all we laud, and magnify, and adore thy Goodness in the Redemption of the World by the Death and Pasfion of our Saviour Christ, both God and Man: who did humble himself even to the Death upon the Cross for us miserable Sinners, who lay in Darkness and in the Shadow of Death, that he might make us the Children of God, and exalt us to' everlasting Life. Teach us to express our Thankfulness, by submitting ourselves entirely to his holy Will and Pleasure, and by studying to serve him in true Holiness and Righteousness all the Days of our Life. Accept, O Lord, of these our Prayers and Praises, in and through the Mediation of Jesus Christ, our blessed Saviour and Redeemer, who hathtaught us when we to pray, to say,
