here to-day to consult concerning the public welfare. Give them the spirit of wisdom and counsel and undestanding; indicate tothem the path of duty, and grant them courage and fidelity to follow it. Bless us all in the various relations of life. Forgive us our sins and enable us so to pass through the things that are temporal that we finally lose not but attain the things that the eternal, and may reach by Thy grace that heavenly kingdom which Thou hast prepared for Thy fithful people. All which we ask in the name and for the sake of Thy Son Jesus Christ, our only mediator and advocate.
