AN APPENDIX TO THE Devout Communicant.
A Prayer at home before the Sacrament.
As soon as ever the Sermon is ended, look towards the Lords Table, and say within your selves,
Then fall upon your Knees with all imaginable Reverence, and say,
When the Minister is confessing sin, and praying for the efficacy of the Ordinance, let your Heart concur with him, and put in your particu∣lar failings with their aggravati∣ons, and the mercies you in special need, which he omits. Prostrate your Souls in the sence of your own vileness, and necessities; joyn with all earnestness in his confessions and Petitions, as one that knows the evil of sin, and the need and worth of the Blessings he Re∣quests.
When you see the breaking of the Bread, and powring out of the Wine, say,
While the Minister and others are Re∣ceiving before you, say,
When the Minister gives you the Bread, Think you hear Christ say to you in particular,
Take the Cup from the Minister, as from Christ, saying,
A Thanksgiving and Prayer at home after the Sacrament.
