A Prayer to Begin the Day from George Wither

Thou, O Lord, art our king and our God; thou only hast the wisdom to know what is best for us, the love to bestow it, the power to effect it, and the eternity to continue it: Give us but grace to believe, to seek, to receive, and to apply these gifts by thy free bounty in thy free service unto our life’s end; through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Daily Prayer, Eric Milner-White and G. W. Briggs, eds. (London: Penguin Books 1959 edition of the 1941 original)
