ADDITIONAL PRAYERS

(for Anglican Morning Prayer).

 

STIR up, 0 LORD, we beseech You, the wills of Thy faithful people, that they plenteously bringing forth the fruit of good works may by You be plenteously rewarded, through JESUS CHRIST, Our LORD. Amen.

 

O GOD the Protector of all that trust in You, without Whom nothing is strong, nothing is holy: Increase and multiply upon us Thy mercy, that Thou being our Ruler and Guide we may so pass through things temporal that we finally lose not the things eternal. Grant this, O heavenly FATHER, for JESUS CHRIST'S sake, Our LORD. Amen.

 

LORD of all power and might, Who art the Author and Giver of all good things: Graft in our hearts the love of Thy Name, increase in us true faith, nourish us with all goodness and of Thy great mercy keep us in the same, through JESUS CHRIST, Our LORD. Amen.

 

DIRECT us, O LORD, in all our doings with Thy most gracious favor and further us with Thy continual help, that in all our works begun, continued, and ended in You we may glorify Thy Holy Name, and finally by Thy mercy obtain everlasting life through JESUS CHRIST, Our LORD. Amen.

 

WE beseech You, O LORD, pour Thy Grace into our hearts: that as we have known the Incarnation of Thy SON JESUS CHRIST by the message of an angel, so by His Cross and Passion we may be brought unto the glory of His Resurrection, through the same JESUS CHRIST, Our LORD. Amen.

 

O GOD, Who has prepared for those who love You such good things as pass man's understanding: Pour into our hearts such love toward You, that we, loving You above all things, may obtain Thy promises, which exceed all that we can desire; through JESUS CHRIST Our Lord. Amen.

 

ALMIGHTY and Everlasting GOD, Who governs all things in Heaven and Earth mercifully hear the prayers and supplications of Thy people; and grant unto the Church all things that are needful for her spiritual and temporal welfare. Strengthen and confirm the faithful; visit and relieve the sick; turn and soften the wicked; rouse the careless; raise the fallen; restore the penitent; remove all hindrances to the advancement of Thy truth, and bring all to be of one heart and one soul within the fold of Thy Holy Church through JESUS CHRIST Our LORD, Who lives and reigns with You in the unity of the Holy Spirit, ever One God, world without end. Amen.

 

FOR SPECIAL GRACE:

ALMIGHTY GOD, Who has given unto us Your Only Son to be both a sacrifice for sin and an example of godly life, grant us Thy Grace (and especially ....) that we may always follow His most blessed steps, through the same JESUS CHRIST, Our LORD. Amen.
