ALmightie God, and most mercifull father, whose iudgements are vn∣searchable, and whose waies are past finding out; teach vs to iudge wiselie of this our sister, and all o∣ther afflicted with thy hand; not condemning them, but rather profi∣ting by them, that their example may leade vs to repentance, and bringing foorth such fruits, as thou requirest of all those that are planted in thy Church; least by continuing fruitlesse, we pro∣uoke thee at the last to the cutting of vs downe. And because thou hast giuen vs a sauiour able to heale all our infirmities, deliuer vs by him, O Lord, from all the bonds of Sathan; that being set at libertie by him, we may fore-see the straight doore, and enter into it, leauing the wide gate that leadeth to destruction, that we may be saued with those few that are ap∣pointed therevnto in Iesus Christ, to whome with thee, and the holie Ghost, be all honor, praise and glorie, for euermore,

Amen.
