Free Church Book of Common Prayer (1929)

Almighty God, who seest that we have no power of ourselves; keep us both outwardly in our bodies, and inwardly in our souls; than we may be defended from all adversities which may happen to the body, and from all adversities which may happen to the body, and from all evil thoughts which may assault and hurt the soul; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Epistle: 1 Thess. iv. 1-8.
Gospel: Matt. xv. 21-28.

A book of prayer for the church and the home (Universalist, 1866)

Tenth Sunday after Christmas

Stir up, we beseech thee, O Lord, the zeal of thy faithful people; that the yoke of Jesus may become easy to them; that their Christian love may work all the miracles of grace, till from grace it pass to glory, from earth to heaven, from duty to reward, from weakness of a commencing and growing affection to the consummation of eternal charity and a complete union with thy Son Jesus Christ. Amen.

Gospel, St. Luke viii. 4v
Epistle, 2 Cor. xi. 19.
