Let your countenance shine upon your servant and teach me your statutes. Psalm 119. v135
Stir up, O Lord, the wills of your faithful people, that richly bearing the fruit of good works we may by you be richly rewarded; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
Lord, your word shall guide us and with truth provide us, Teach us to receive it and with joy believe it. When the storms distress us and dark clouds oppress us, then you word protects us and its light directs us… (Henry Williams Baker)
