Blessed be the glory of the Lord from His holy place, even the glory of the Lord out of His sanctuary.
~Introductory Sentence from the Order for the Administration of the Holy Communion [sic] after Morning Prayer.
O Holy Ghost, Comforter, Spirit of Truth, who art everywhere present and fillest all things, Treasure of Good, Giver of Life; Visit us, we beseech Thee, with the fulness [sic] of Thy grace. Thou that hast sanctified these gifts, sanctify us also, even our whole body, soul and spirit, that we may abide Thy temple and dwelling-place for ever.
~Prayer before the administration of Communion from the Order for the Celebration of the Holy Eucharist.
Almighty God, the Fountain of all wisdom, Who knowest our necessities before we ask, and our ignorance in asking, we beseech Thee to have compassion upon our infirmities; and that those things, which for our unworthiness we dare not, and for our blindness we cannot ask, vouchsafe to give us, for the worthiness of Thy Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.
~Additional Collect for the Fore-Noon or Afternoon Service.
Almighty God, Who hast caused the hearts of Thy people to desire and long for the anointing of Thy Holy Spirit; Grant unto us, we beseech Thee, to be enriched with His manifold gifts, that, paintedly enduring through the darkness of this world, and filled with divine grace, we may be found shining brightly, like burning lamps, in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ, when He cometh in His kingdom: Hear us, we beseech Thee, for the sake of the same, our Mediator and Redeemer.
~Collect, Evening Prayer for the Eve of Pentecost.
