For the Spread of Christ’s Kingdom

Almighty God and heavenly Father, who of Thine infinite love and
goodness towards us, hast given to us Thy only and most dearly beloved
Son, Jesus Christ, to be our redeemer and the author of everlasting
life, who, after He made perfect our redemption, by His death and was
ascended into heaven, sent abroad into the world His apostles, prophets,
evangelists, doctors, and pastors; by whose labour and ministry He
gathered together a great flock from all parts of the world, to set
forth the eternal praise of Thy holy name: for these so great benefits
of Thy eternal goodness we render unto Thee most hearty thanks. We
praise and worship Thee, and we humbly beseech Thee, by the same Thy
blessed Son, to grant unto all which here or elsewhere, call upon Thy
holy name, that we may continue to show ourselves thankful unto Thee for
these and all other Thy benefits, and that we may daily increase and go
forward in the knowledge and faith of Thee and Thy Son by the Holy
Spirit, so that Thy holy name may be for ever glorified, and Thy blessed
Kingdom enlarged; through the same Thy Son Jesus Christ our Lord, who
liveth and reigneth with Thee in the unity of the same Holy Spirit,
world without end. Amen.
