“Come unto Me and I will give you rest.” – Matt. 11:28 ~
O GOD, our Father, and the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, it is written in Thy Word that Thy Holy Spirit helpeth our infirmity that we may know what we should pray for as we ought; and that He maketh intercession for the saints according the will of God.
We yield ourselves to Thee, our God and Father, that Thy Sprit may exercise this grace toward us, and work this gift in us just now; that He may cleanse our hearts from all iniquity, and lift them up in the worship and love of Thy Holy Name; that He may comfort us in our trials to-day; that He may strengthen us in every moment of temptation; that He may guide us in all our ways to do Thy will; that He may help us in our toil and enlighten us in our perplexity.
O Heavenly Father, shed abroad Thy love in our hearts and keep[ us loving, hopeful, patient, kind and true, thus blessing all with whom we come in contact, and glorifying Thy Great Name Who are worthy of all our heart’s devotion forever and ever.
Through Jesus Christ, our Saviour, Who loveth us and loosed us from our sins in His own blood. Amen
