Preparatory Prayers.

GIve ear to my words, O Lord, consider my medita∣tion.

Hearken to the voice of my cry, my King and my God, for unto Thee will I Pray, Psal. 5. 1, 2.

Thou that hearest the prayer, unto Thee shall all flesh come.

Let not my Lord be angry if I, who am but dust and ashes, pre∣sume to approach and speak unto Thee: O Thou that art easie to be intreated, and rejoycest in do∣ing good, bow down thy gentle ear, and hear me, and have mer∣cy upon me.

Raise up my soul, and sanctifie my heart and lips, that I may ask those things which are most agree∣able to thy holy Will.

Let the words of my mouth, and the medi∣tations of my heart be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord my Strength and my Redeemer.
