A praier against couetousnesse, or too much care of the world.

GOod Lord, seeing that it is thy pleasure, that we shall not be carefull for worldlie things: if a sparowe falleth not on the ground with∣out thy fore-sight, how much more care doest thou take for vs thy children? Good Lord, thou feedest the birds of the aire, and cloathest the lillies of the feeld, which take no care. Wherefore good Lord, so pro∣uide for our necessitie and sicknesse, we beseech thee, that we casting all our care vpon thee, may cheeflie stu∣die to please thee, and serue thee, which liuest and reig∣nest king of all kings for euer,

Amen.
