Anglican Patrimony: Daily Offices of Prayer

Daily Offices of Prayer (1851), The Church of England, House of Mercy, Clewer, pp. 67-68
O ALMIGHTY God, Who searchest the hearts, and triest the reins, try us, we beseech Thee, and seek the ground of our hearts : cleanse us from all hypocrisy, and suffer not any accursed thing to lurk within us ; give us truth in the inward parts, and make us pure in heart, that we may hereafter see Thee in Thy glorious kingdom, through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.

ABIDE with us, O blessed Spirit, and so cleanse our consciences, that our Lord Jesus Christ when He cometh, may find us watching and prepared for His appearing, Who by His dying for us, overcame death, and by His rising again, has opened for us the gate of everlasting life.

Help us, O God of our salvation, for the glory of Thy Name : O deliver us, and be merciful unto our sins, for Thy Name's sake.

+Christ, have mercy upon us.
