Rogation Day Prayers
"All we can do is worth nothing
Unless God blesses the deed;
Vainly we hope for the harvest-tide
Till God gives life to the seed;
Yet nearer and nearer draws the time,
The time that shall surely be
When the earth shall be filled with the glory of God
As the waters cover the sea."
To the regular family prayers,
which we say during the Easter season,
we add the following:
Praise the Lord; for He is good.
His mercy endures forever.
We beseech Thee, Almighty God,
that because of our afflictions
we may rely on Thy goodness,
and with Thy protection may be defended against all adversities.
And I say to you;
ask, and it shall be given to you;
seek, and you shall find;
knock, and it shall be opened to you.
For everyone who asks, receives;
and he who seeks, finds;
and to him who knocks, it shall be opened.
