Fifth Day Evening: Protection



Thou art our Preserver, Governor, Saviour,
        and coming Judge.
Quieten our souls to call upon thy name;
Detach us from the influence of the flesh
    and the senses;
Impress us with the power of faith;
Promote in us spirituality of mind
  that will render our services acceptable to thee,
  and delightful and profitable to ourselves.
Bring us into that state which attracts thine eye,
  and prepare us to receive the proofs of thy love.
Show us our danger, that we may fly to thee
    for refuge.
Make us sensible of our sin’s disease,
  that we may value the good Physician.
Placard to us the cross, that it may slay
    the enmity of our hearts.
Help us to be
  watchful over our ways,
  jealous over our tempers,
  diligent over our hearts.
When we droop, revive us,
When we loiter, quicken us,
When we go astray, restore us.
Possess us with more of that faith
  which is the principle of all vital godliness.
May we
        be rich in faith,
        be strong in faith,
        live by faith,
        walk by faith,
        experience the joy of faith,
        do the work of faith,
        hope through faith.
Perceiving nothing in ourselves,
  may we find in the Saviour
    wisdom, righteousness,
    sanctification, redemption.
