400 Year Old Prayers 1

The following  prayers were first offered back in the 1700′s.  They come largely from the forgotten deposit of the Puritan Movement of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.  These people knew God and they certainly knew how to pray.  We can learn a lot from them. They are written in old english.  I have updated  a few outdated words and changed the Thee’s and Thou’s to make it more 2011.  However, they still have the feel of that era.   They, along with many others, can be found in a book titled “The Valley of Vision”, by Arthur Bennett.
