THE THIRD HOUR OF PRAYER, AT THE Third Hour of the Day, About IX. in the Morning.

HEar my Prayer, O God, and hide not thy self from my Petition.

OUR Father, which art in Heaven, Hallowed be thy Name; thy Kingdom come, thy Will be done in Earth as it is in Heaven: Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive them

Page 64

that trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from all evil. For thine is the Kingdom, the Power, and the Glory, for ever and ever. Amen.

O Lord, open thou my lips,

And my mouth shall shew forth thy praise.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost.

As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be world without end. Amen.

Psal. 25.

UNto thee, O Lord, will I lift up my Soul. My God I have put my trust in thee; O let me not be confounded, nei∣ther let mine enemies triumph over me.

Page 65

For all they that hope in thee shall not be ashamed; but such as trangress without a cause shall be put to confusion.

Shew me thy ways, O Lord, and teach me thy paths.

Lead me forth in thy Truth, and learn me; for thou art the God of my Salvation. In thee hath been my hope all the day long.

Call to remembrance, O Lord, thy tender mercies, and thy lo∣ving kindness, which hath been ever of old.

O remember not the sins and offences of my Youth: but ac∣cording to thy mercy think thou upon me, O Lord, for thy good∣ness.

Gracious and righteous is the Lord, therefore will we teach sin∣ners in the way.

Them that be meek shall he guide in judgment: and such as be gentle, them shall he learn his way.

Page 66

All the paths of the Lord are mercy and truth unto such as keep his Covenant and his Testimo∣nies.

For thy Names sake, O Lord be merciful unto my sin, for it is great.

What man is he that feareth the Lord? Him shall he teach in the way that he shall chuse.

His Soul shall dwell at ease, and his Seed shall inherit the Land.

The Secret of the Lord is among them that fear him, and he will shew them his Covenant.

Mine eyes are ever looking un∣to the Lord, for he shall pluck my feet out of the Net.

Turn thee unto me, and have mercy upon me, for I am desolate and in misery.

The sorrows of my heart are enlarged: O bring thou me out of my troubles.

Look upon my adversity and misery, and forgive me all my sin.

Page 67

Consider mine Enemies how many they are, and they bear a tyrannous hate against me.

O keep my Soul and deliver me: let me not be confounded, for I have put my trust in thee.

Let perfectness and righteous dealing wait upon me, for my hope hath been in thee.

Deliver Israel, O God, out of all his troubles.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost.

As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be world without end. Amen.

ALmighty Lord God, who hast created all things for thine own Glory and Service, give us grace to direct all our thoughts, words, and works to that one end, that so having ser∣ved thee faithfully here, we may

Page 68

glorifie thee eternally in thy King∣dom hereafter, through Jesus Christ our Saviour. Amen.

NOW unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the Power that worketh in us; unto him be Glo∣ry in the Church by Christ Jesus, throughout all ages world without end. Amen.
