The Other Prayers

The change from the Three Collects to the Three Prayers which follow
may be softened by the Anthem, (or Hymn), which comes between. The
spiritual gifts, desired in the Collects, are the qualities which guide
the lives of men. When we pray that we may have a good King, or a good
Bishop, or a good People, we have evidently passed from the general to
the particular; from that which is within us to that which is external.
