Heavenly Father, who through thy Son Jesus Christ hast taught us, saying, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and you shall find; knock, and it shall be opened to you: Give us grace now to ask in faith, according to thy Word; to seek only what is agreeable to thy holy will; and to knock with patience at the door of thy mercy, until our petition is granted and prayer is turned to praise; for the glory of thy holy name.
