Clouds they are without water, carried about of winds ; trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots ; raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever.

Jude 12, 13.

A Prayer

Merciful and loving Father, almighty God, grant unto us Thy humble
servants and ministers a double portion of Thy Spirit that our
eyes may be opened to the wickedness of them that love Thee not,
that by Thy grace our ministrations may be used to bring them out
of darkness into Light, by the virtue of our crucified Lord, risen
and ascended. Thine only-begotten Son, in Whose name we ask this
Thy blessing. For Jesus Christ's sake, Amen.
