PRAYER FOR THE GENERAL SYNOD
(To be used in all Churches in the Dominion on two or more Sundays previous to each meeting of the Synod, as well
as during the Session).
Almighty and Everlasting God, who by Thy Holy Spirit didst preside in the Council of the blessed Apostles, and hast promised, through Thy Son Jesus Christ, to be with Thy Church to the end of the world, we beseech Thee to be present at the General Synod now (about to be) assembled in Thy name. Save us (them) from all error, ignorance, pride and prejudice; and of Thy great mercy vouchsafe so to direct, govern and sanctify us (them) in our (their) deliberations by Thy Holy Spirit, that through Thy blessing the Gospel of Christ may be faithfully preached and obeyed, the order and discipline of Thy Church maintained, and the Kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ enlarged and extended. Grant this, we beseech Thee, through the merits and mediation of the same Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
MID-DAY PRAYER FOR MISSIONS
OUR FATHER, who art in Heaven, Hallowed be Thy Name. Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done, in earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, As we forgive them that trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation; But deliver us from evil; For Thine is the Kingdom, The power and the glory, For ever and ever.
"And I, if I be lifted up, will draw all men unto Me."
BLESSED SAVIOUR, who at this hour didst hang upon the Cross, stretching out Thy loving arms; Grant that all mankind may look unto Thee and be saved; Who livest and reignest with the Father and the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end. Amen.
At mid-day, 0 King, I saw a light above the brightness of the sun."
ALMIGHTY SAVIOUR, who at mid-day didst call Thy servant Saint Paul, to be an Apostle to the Gentiles; we beseech Thee illumine the world with the radiance of Thy glory, that all nations may come and worship Thee, Who art, with the Father and the Holy Ghost, one God, world without end. Amen.
“Peter went up upon the house-top to pray about the sixth hour."
FATHER OF MERCIES, who to Thine Apostle, Saint Peter, didst reveal in three-fold vision Thy boundless compassion; Forgive, we pray Thee, our unbelief, and so enlarge our hearts and enkindle our zeal that we may fervently desire the salvation of all men, and with more ready diligence labour in the extension of Thy Kingdom; for His sake Who gave Himself for the life of the world, Thy Son our Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen.
