Almighty God, have mercy upon us, who, when troubled with the things that are past, lose faith, and life, and courage, and hope. So have mercy upon us, and uphold us, that we, being sustained by a true faith that You are merciful and forgiving, may go on in the life of the future to keep Your commandments, to rejoice in Your bounty, to trust in Your mercy, and to hope in the eternal life. Grant unto all of us, whatsoever may betide us, to remember ever that it is all of Your guidance, under Your care, by Your will ; that so, in darkest days, beholding You we may have courage to go on, faith to endure, patience to bear, and hopefulness to hold out, even unto the end—Amen.  — George Dawson
