In apparelling your selfe, praie:

CLoath mee, O Christ, with thine owne selfe, that I may be so farre from making prouision for the flesh to fulfill the lusts thereof; that I may cleane put off all my carnall desires, and crucifie the kingdome of the flesh in me. Be thou vnto mee a garment to keepe me warme, and to defend me from the cold of this world. If thou be absent, deere Lord, all things will be vnto me foorth∣with cold, weake, and dead: but if thou be with me, all things will be warme, liuelie, fresh, and cheerefull. Grant therefore, that as I compasse this my bodie with this garment, so thou wouldst cloath me wholie; but especiallie my soule with thine owne selfe, So be it.

Put vpon you as the elect of God, bowels of mercie, meekenesse, loue, peace.
Col. 3, verse, 12.
Let not him that putteth on his harnesse, boast himselfe, as he that putteth it off.
1, Kings 20, verse, 11.
