Our Father, in Heaven, look down in mercy upon us and upon this thy servant whom we to the ministry of the twelve. He shall be prepared and preserved and become like those we have blessed before him, The nations shall tremble before him. He shall hear the voice of God: he shall comfort the hearts of the saints, always. The angels shall bear him up till he shall finish his ministry. He shall be delivered and come forth with Israel. He shall bear testimony to the kings of the earth, and hold communion with the Father, with the son and with the general assembly and church of the first born. If cast into prison he shall be able to comfort the hearts of his comrades His tongue shall be loosed and he shall have power to lead many to , and set down with them, and the Ancient of Days shall pronounce this blessing. That you have been faithful. He shall have strength [p. 152]
