A Prayer to begin the Day from from Henry Stobart (1824-1895)

O God, by whose Almighty power all things living were created, and by Who, on the sixth day, didst make the first man after Thine own image; mercifully grant that in following Thy Son, the second Man from heaven, we may recover that which hath been lost through sin, and may put on the new Man, which is created after Thee in righteousness and true holiness, though the same Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

–Henry Stobart, Daily Services For Christian Households (London:SPCK, 1867), p.71
