Thy testimonies, O Lord, are very sure, holiness becometh thine house for ever.

After the Collect for the Day may be used the following Prayer.

O ETERNAL Lord God, who alone spreadest out the heavens, and rulest the raging of the sea; who hast compassed the waters with bounds, until day and night come to an end; be pleased to receive into thine almighty and most gracious protection, the persons of us thy servants, who now call upon thy name from the bosom of the mighty

deep. Borne on the surface of a changing ele ment, and exposed to the vicissitudes of the inconstant skies, may we alway's feel ourselves in the presence and merciful care of that infinite and holy God, who hath measured the waters in the hollow of his hand, and meted out heaven with a span. Preserve us, we pray thee, from the dangers of the sea; from shipwreck; from fire; from the wrath of the tempest;

may constantly prosper under thy care, and be des fended with thy favourable kindness as with a shield Bless our absent friends, wherever they may beg preserve them from evil; and in thy great mercy permit us to see them again, and rejoice in their society and welfare. god me.

But we do more especially pray, O Lord our God, that if thou shouldst see fit to bring us into peril and misfortune, we may bear thy whole will with perfect submission, and surrender ourselves in every event to thine absolute and all wise disposal. Whether we are in danger or at rest, in sickness or health, in life or death, let us be thine, O Lord, and wholly thine.
