Prayer for the Government

We pray Thee, 0 Almighty and Eternal God, who through Jesus Christ hast revealed Thy glory to all nations, to preserve the works of Thy mercy; that Thy Church, being spread through the whole world, may continue, with unchanging faith, in the confession of Thy name.

We pray Thee, 0 God of might, wisdom, and justice, through whom authority is rightly administered, laws are enacted, and judgment decreed, assist, with Thy Holy Spirit of counsel and fortitude, the Leaders of the Cornish Nation, and their administration may be conducted in righteousness, and be eminently useful to Thy people, over whom they preside, by encouraging due respect for virtue and religion; by a faithful execution of the laws injustice and mercy; and by restraining vice and immorality. Let the light of Thy divine wisdom direct the deliberations of the Stannary Parliament, and shine forth in all the proceedings and laws framed for our rule and government; so that they may tend to the preservation of peace, the promotion of national happiness, the increase of industry, sobriety, and useful knowledge, and may perpetuate to us the blessings of equal liberty.

We pray for his Excellency the Lord Protector of the Stannaries of Cornwall, for the members Stannators of this Assembly, for all Judges, Magistrates, and other officers who are appointed to guard our political welfare; that they may be enabled, by Thy powerful protection, to discharge the duties of their respective stations with honesty and ability.

We recommend likewise to Thy unbounded mercy all our brethren and fellow citizens, throughout the Cornish Lands, that they may be blessed in the knowledge, and sanctified in the observance of Thy most holy law: that they may be preserved in union and in that peace which the world cannot give; and, after enjoying the blessings of this life, be admitted to those which are eternal.
