O God, the author of Grace and Glory, and the giver of Life and Happiness to thy Creatures, from whofe original Influence proceedeth every good and perfect Gift; favourably regard our ⚫ humble and fervent Interceffions in behalf of thy Servant, who, has this day voluntarily taken upon himself the holy profeffion of the Chriftian Religion. Never may thy Servant repent of this folemn Vow, by which he has now bound himself to deny ungodlinefs, and all those worldly lufts that would debafe and ruin his precious Soul; nor let him account any of thy Commandments' grievous, which are conducive to his highest improvement and happiness, and in keeping of which he will find conftant peace and fatisfaction, with an exceeding great and eternal reward. As a dear and dutiful Son of God, may he imitate more and more the moral perfections and example of his heavenly Father, keeping in habitual remembrance the most beneficent and amiable pattern of the Author and Finisher of his Faith, to direct his fteps in every ftation, and to every inftance of his Chriftian Duty.'- The Covenant of the Lord his God, into which thy Servant has this day voluntary entered, may he henceforth ftedfaftly and religiously perform, looking with affurance for thy favour and acceptance, through Jefus Chrift our Lord, and reaping all thofe improvements and benefits which are fo graciously annexed in the promises of the Gofpel, to the due obfervance of the divine ordinances.'
