Our Father, which art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done.
Enable me to say from my heart, Thy will be done, O God. The heaven is thy throne, and earth is
thy footstool; neither may any say unto thee, what doest thou? But thou art the high and lofty One
that inhabiteth eternity, yet will thou condescend to look upon him that is of a humble, a broken,
and a contrite heart. As such, enable me, O God, to bow before thee at this time, under a deep
sense of my guilt and unworthiness. It was my sins that caused thee to arise in thy wrath against
me. Be pleased, O God, to blot them from thy book, and remember them no more for ever. Bless
the church to which I belong. Thine arm is not shortened that it cannot save, neither is thine ear
heavy that it cannot hear; but it is our sins that have separated thee from us. Purge us from all our
dross; hide thy face from our iniquities, and speak peace to our troubled souls. Bless thy servant,
our pastor; let not this soul be discouraged, but may an angel appear unto him, strengthening him.
Bless all the benighted sons and daughters of Africa, especially my unconverted friends. Send
them not away fro thy presence into that large that burneth with fire and bring stone, but magnify
the riches of thy grace in plucking their souls as brands from the burning; and thought I may long
sleep in death before thou wilt perform this work, yet grant that in the resurrection morn we may
all awake in thy likeness,
31and our souls be bound in the sure bundle of eternal life.
