A PRAYER.

my thoughts and actions may be henceforth accepted, that He, Thy Word, may be “as the bright shining of a candle within me—a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path,” in fulfilment of Thy benevolent decree—“Let us make man in our image, after our likeness” in Jesus, Thy Christ, as “our shield and exceeding great reward”_" to plant us in the mountain of His inheritance;" by whom we receive all the good we possess, and all that we hope for. The evil is our own, from the base passions of our earthly state, in the pride, perverseness, and arrogance of Satan, created for Thy own wise purposes, and in Thy judgment “ cursed above all cattle."
