Appearance Upon Me Along with Eyes of Whim

I usually enjoy finding brand new prayer resources plus, for that reason, was pleased to receive a copy of Donald McKim’ s new Everyday Prayer with all the Puritans . It features prayers in the Puritans accompanied by devotions from McKim. This is a prayer from Lewis Bayly that was out to me. Perhaps it can help and guide you as you pray…

Um most gracious Lord and loving Dad, who art about my bed plus knowest my down-lying and my uprising, and art near unto all that call upon thee in truth and sincerity, I, wretched sinner, do beseech thee to look on me with the eye of thy mercy, and not to see me as I feel in myself…

So , I beseech thee, sanctify unto me this particular night’ s sleep and sleep, that I may enjoy the just like thy sweet true blessing and benefit; that so this dull and wearied body of mine, being rejuvenated with moderate sleep and rest, I might be the better enabled to walk just before thee, doing many such good happens to be thou hast appointed, when it shall make sure you thee by thy divine power to waken me the next morning.

And whilst I rest, do thou, O Lord, who art the keeper of Israel, that nor slumberest nor sleepest, watch over myself in thy holy providence, to protect myself from all hazards, so that neither the evil angels associated with Satan, nor any wicked enemy, might have any power to do me any harm or evil…

Hasten, U Father, the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. Make me ever mindful of the last end, and of the reckoning which i am then for making unto thee; and the meanwhile, careful so to follow Christ in the regeneration during this life, as that with Christ I might have a portion in the resurrection of the simply, when this mortal life is ended. These graces, and all other blessings, which thou, O Father, knowest to be requisite and necessary for me, We humbly beg plus crave at thy hands, in the title and mediation of Jesus Christ thy Son. Amen.
