GLORIOUS Jehovah, Father, Son and Holy Ghost! You are the unsearchable and incomprehensible Lord God! Who by searching can find out God? Who can find out the Almighty to perfection? When we consider Your infinite perfection, the wisdom of Your counsels, Your power in creation, the mysteries of Your providence, and the wonders of redemption, we can do nothing but stand in awe! O the depth of the riches, both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and His ways past finding out!

Great and Omnipresent Deity our God and Father! Where shall I go from Your spirit, or where shall I flee from Your presence? You are all pervading and fill immensity with Your presence, sustaining and governing the universe of matter and of mind. May a realizing sense of Your presence inspire seriousness and encouragement, and consolation. May it preserve us from sin, animate us to a cheerful discharge of our duties, and enable us to bear, with pious resignation, the afflictions and sorrows of life.

God of Omniscience, Yours eyes are upon all the ways of the sons of men; to give every one according to His ways, and according to the fruit of His doings. O You that search the heart and try the reins of the children of men, may each one of us feel You in his heart. O Lord, You have searched me and known me; You know my down-sitting and my uprising, You understand my thoughts afar off. May the solemn truth that You God see ue, restrain each of us from sin, and lead us to the worship of Your great name in spirit and in truth.

Omnipresent and Omniscient God, who is everywhere, be very near to us in all times of difficulty, in danger and in the hour of death, and in the solemnities of the judgment, clothe our naked souls with the garments of Christ’s righteousness. For the blessings of the day we thank You, 0 Lord, keep us this night, and save us. Amen!
