The praier that maister Bradfords morher said and offered vnto God in his behalfe, a little be∣fore his martyrdome.

AH good Father, which dooest vouchsafe that my sonne Iohn Bradford, being a greeuous sinner in thy sight, should find this fauour with thee, to be one of thy sonne Christ his captaines and men of war, to fight and suffer for his Gospels sake, I thanke thee: and praie thee in the same thy deere sonne Christs name, that thou wouldest for∣giue him his sinnes and vnthankfulnesse; and make perfect in him that good which thou hast begun in him. Yea Lord, I praie thee make him worthie to suffer, not only imprisonment, but euen verie death for thy truth, religion, and Gospell sake. As Hanna did applie, dedi∣cate, and giue hir first child and sonne Samuel vnto thee: euen so doo I deere Father; beseeching thee, for Christs sake, to accept this my gift; and giue my sonne Iohn Bradford grace alwaies tru∣lie to serue thee, and thy people, as Samuel did;

Amen: Amen.
