FORMS FOR SELF-EXAMINATION
Devotions on the Blessed Sacrament:
TO WHICH ARE ADDED
THE COLLECTS AND THE PSALMS OF DAVID
FROM THE BOOK OF COMMON PRAYER.
138. 9. 198.
[It was thought well, in the compilation of this little book of Devotions, to print the COLLECTS from the Book of COMMON PRAYER, so that during each recurring week the Sunday or Saint's Day Collect which would be used in the Public Service of the Church might also be systematically added to these Private Devotions, morning and evening. The classification which precedes the Collects will also enable them to be readily used on any occasions for which they may be specially suitable.
With a similar object the PSALMS of DAVID are appended. Many who may be unable to attend the public Daily Services of the Church would surely be glad to say privately the portion of the Psalter which has been fixed by authority as appropriate for daily use.]
The Lord's Prayer. Our Father, Which 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. Amen.
The Apostles' Creed. I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of Heaven and earth:
And in Jesus Christ His only Son our Lord, Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, Born of the Virgin Mary, Suffered under Pontius Pilate, Was crucified, dead, and buried, He descended into hell; The third day He rose again from the dead, He ascended in Heaven, And sitteth on the right Hand of God the Father Almighty ; From thence He shall come to judge the quick and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Ghost; the Holy Catholic Church ; the Communion of Saints; the Forgiveness of sins; the Resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.
Psalms 63, 93, or 148 may be used with the MORNING Devotions.
A portion of Psalm 119 may be used with the MIDDAY Devotions.
Psalms 4, 91, 134, or 31, to ver. 6, may be used with the EVENING Devotions.
The Gloria Patri. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son : and to the Holy Ghost;
As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be: world without end. Amen.
Morning Prayers. At your waking in the morning, give your first thoughts to God, and when you rise say
In the Name of Jesus Christ crucified, I arise to do His Will. May He bless me, guide me, keep me, and bring me to everlasting life. Amen.
When you are dressed kneel down, and placing yourself in the presence of God, say
In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.
O my God, I firmly believe that Thou art here present, and knowest all the most secret thoughts of my heart.
Our Father. I believe. Glory be. Act of Adoration.—I adore Thee, most Holy Trinity, the Beginning and the End of all things; praise and glory be to Thee through eternal ages ; blessed and magnified be Thy holy Name for all Thy unspeakable mercies to me, especially for my redemption and preservation, even to this hour. I desire to join with all Thy saints and angels in due worship of Thee.
Acts of Faith, Hope, and Charity.-0 my God, I believe in Thee, and in all Thou hast taught us in Thy Word and by Thy Church, because Thou
