O GOD, wee haue heard with our eares, and our fathers and prea∣chers haue declared vnto vs, the noble works that thou hast done of old time for vs. Grant therefore, we beseech thee, O thou heauenlie hus∣bandman, that this seed of thy word now sowne amongst vs, may take such deepe root in our harts; that neither the burning heate of persecution cause it to wither, neither the thornie cares of this life doo choke it: but that as seed sowne in good ground it may bring foorth thirtie, sixtie, and an hundred fold; as thy heauenlie wisedome hath appointed, to the glorie of thy holie name,

Amen.
