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.
