A praier for the Queenes Maiestie.

O Lord our heauenlie father, high and migh∣tie, King of kings, Lord of lords, the onlie ru∣ler of princes, which dooest from thy throne behold all the dwellers vpon earth, most har∣tilie we beseech thee with thy fauour to behold our most gratious souereigne ladie Queene Elizabeth, and so replenish hir with the grace of thy holie spirit, that she may alwaie incline to thy will and walke in thy waie. Indue hir plentifullie with heauenlie gifts, graunt hir in health and wealth long to liue, streng∣then hir, that she may vanquish and ouercome all hir enimies: and finallie after this life, she may attaine e∣uerlasting ioie and felicitie: through Iesus Christ our Lord,

Amen.
