O Lord God of Abraham, Isaac, and of Israel, our fathers,
&c:] The ancestors of the Jewish nation, whose covenant God the Lord was, and who had ever been mindful of his promise to them, with respect to them their seed:
keep this for ever in the imagination of the thoughts of the heart of
let the same disposition of mind always continue in them to serve the Lord their God:
and prepare their heart unto thee;
incline and dispose their minds always to fear the Lord, and obey his will.
