Or praie for the fruits of Baptisme thus.

MOst heauenlie and eternall father, we thy humble seruants entirelie desire thy fatherlie goodnesse, that as thou hast begun in vs a newe birth, & washed vs with the foun∣taine of regeneration, whereby we are made members of thy bodie, and elected into the number and fe∣lowship of thy Church and congregation: so thou wouldest powre vpon vs the grace of thy spirit, to di∣rect our liues according to this beginning, in holinesse and purenesse, that we may mortifie the lusts of the flesh, resist the assaults of Sathan, and auoide the a∣lurements of the wicked world, remembring alwaies that Baptisme doth represent vnto vs our vocation, quenching those sparks of concupiscence that we all drawe from the old Adam, and quickning vs in those good fruits of Christ our Sa∣uiour, who continuallie preserue vs with his holie spirit for euer and euer,

Amen.
