Day 7, page 39-40, third Prayer
May the grace of courage, gaiety, and the quiet mind, with all such blessedness as [belongs] to the children of the Father of Heaven, be ours, to the praise of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, Who [lives] and [reigns], One God, World without end. O Lord, forgive what we have been; sanctify what we are; and order what we will be. [In the name and for the sake of Jesus Christ we pray. Amen. ]

In the blog posts under this title we will revisit a collection of prayers published by the BBC* in the 1950’s for use in hospitals,  denote changes. These prayers included Psalms suggested reading within the text and here we add some Old and New Testament scripture that could also be associated with the prayers.
