In the day when I cried thou didst answer me, and didst strengthen me with strength in my soul.

wilt revive me: thou shalt stretch forth thine hand against the wrath of mine enemies, and thy right hand shall save me.

The Lord will perfect that which concerneth me: thy mercy, O Lord, endureth for ever: forsake not the works of thine own hands.Ps. cxxxviii.

ACCEPT our prayers and praises, we humbly entreat thee, O Lord, and send us an answer in peace: through thy well-beloved Son, our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Eternal Spirit, in the unity of the Godhead, world without end: and in whose name and words we say:

Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.
