LORD our God, who upholdest and governest all things in heaven
and earth; receive our humble prayers, with our hearty thanksgivings, for our Sovereign Lady Anne, as on this Day, set over us by thy grace and providence to be our Queen ; and so together with her bless the Princess Sophia, and the whole Royal Family, that they all, ever trusting in thy goodness, protected by thy power, and crowned with thy gracious and endless favour, may continue before thee in health, peace, joy, and honour, a long and happy life upon earth, and after death obtain everlasting life and glory in the Kingdom of Heaven, by the Merits and Mediation of Christ Jesus our Saviour, who with the Father and the Holy Spirit, liveth and reigneth ever one God, world without end.

upon the Throne of her Ancestors, we most humbly beseech thee to protect her on the same from all the dangers to which she may be exposed ; Do thou weaken the hands, blast the designs, and defeat the enterprises of all her enemies, that no secret conspiracies, nor open violences, may disquiet her Reign; but that, being safely kept under the
1704 shadow of thy wing, and supported by thy power, she may triumph over all opposition ; that so the world may acknowledge thee to be her defender and mighty deliverer in all difficulties and adversities; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

the Collect for the Queen, and that of the Day, shall be used this Prayer for the
of thy Faith, and hast made it their duty to promote the spiritual welfare, together with the temporal interest of their people ; We acknowledge with humble and thankful hearts thy great goodness to us, in setting thy Servant our most gracious Queen over this Church and Nation; Give her, we beseech thee, all those heavenly graces that are requisite for so high a trust; Let the work of thee her God prosper in her hands ; Let her
behold the success of her designs for the service of thy. true Religion established amongst us; And make her a blessed instrument of protecting and advancing thy Truth, wherever it is persecuted and oppressed; Let Hypocrisy and Profaneness, Superstition and Idolatry, fly before her face; Let not Heresies and false Doctrines disturb the peace of the Church, nor Schisms and causeless Divisions weaken it; But grant us to be of one heart and one mind in serving thee our God, and obeying her according to thy will: And that these blessings may be continued to after ages, make the Queen, we pray thee, an happy Mother of Children, who being educated in thy true Faith and Fear, may happily succeed her in the Government of these Kingdoms. So we that are thy people, and sheep of thy pasture, shall give thee thanks for ever, and will always be shewing forth thy praise from generation to generation. Amen.
