A Prayer to be Said by All Good Citizens on the Day of Fasting & Prayer
In thy Name, oh Lord, we pray thee that thou will
Establish thy power more fully upon earth,
Favor oh Lord, all those who for thy honor and glory
Forget the ties that bind them to this world.
Establish justice and mercy upon this land that being
Rich in thy graces, we may live in peace with our neighbors,
So that when thou seest fit to call us to thyself
Oh Lord, we may forever part this life with
No pang of sorrow to mar our hopes of eternal life with thee.
Do not, oh Lord, let the enemy of our liberty
Abe Attempt to hide himself under the veil of
Virtue, lest at any time he may snatch us from thee,
In thy name, oh Lord, we ask these favours through the merits of thy
Son, our Saviour, who livest and reignest with thee forever.
