Grant them the favour of being led by thee Lord,
under the directions of thy providence
and thy word.
Grant them, like Gideon of old,way-tokens,
by removing things that discourage them;
Cast them not under the feet of
pride, injustice, riches, worldly greatness,
selfish oppression of men;
Help them to wait patiently, silently upon thee.
not to be enraged or speak unadvisedly.
Let thy mercy follow them while they live,
and give them aid to resign themselves to thy will.
Take their hearts and hold it in thy hand;
write upon it reverence to thyself with an
inscription that time and eternity cannot erase.
...The Valley of Vision puritan prayers............
We love you and are so very proud of you both.
