For Guidance amid the Cares and Temptations of Business

Father of mercies, who art always more ready to hear than we are to pray, when, beset with the temptations and oppressed with the cares of business, we look to thee for help and guidance of thy Holy Spirit, give us, we beseech thee, that assistance which we need, and grant that by a life of justice, mercy, and holiness, we may glorify thy name; graft in our hearts the love of thy law, increase in us true religion, nourish us with all goodness, and of thy great mercy keep us in the same, world without end. Amen.

  • From “Second Order for Vespers” in Gloria Patri Revised (1903), p. 130
