^prayer for the Honour ablirtind United Company of Merchants of England trading to the East Indies.
To be used in their Factories abroad.
f~\ Almighty and most merciful Lord God, thou art the sovereign preserver of all that trust in thee, and the author of all spiritual and temporal blessings; Let thy grace, we most humbly beseech thee, be always present with thy servants the United Company of Merchants of England trading to the East Indies, Compass them with thy favour as with a shield, prosper them in all their public undertakings, and make them successful in all their affairs both by sea and land. Grant that they may prove a common blessing, by the increase of honour, wealth and power, to our native country. Give to us and all thy servants, whom thy providence has placed in these remote parts of the world, grace to discharge our several duties, with piety towards thee our God, loyalty towards oUr King, fidelity and diligence towards them by whom we are imployed, kindness and love towards one another, and sin* cere charity towards all men. • That we adorning
the the gospel of our Lord and Saviour in all things, these Indian nations among whom we dwell, beholding our good works, may be won over thereby to love our most holy religion, and glorify thee our Father which art in heaven. All this we beg for the sake of our Saviour Jesus Christ; to whom with Thee and the blessed Spirit be ascribed all honour, praise and dominion, both now and for evermore. Amen.
