Great Blessing of Water

That these waters may be sanctified by the power, and effectual operation, and descent of the Holy Spirit:

That there may descend upon these waters the cleansing operation of the super-substantial Trinity:

That he will endue them with the grace of redemption, the blessing of Jordan, the might, and operation, and descent of the Holy Spirit:

That Satan may speedily be crushed under our feet, and that every evil counsel directed against us may be brought to naught:

That the Lord our God will free us from every attack and temptation of the enemy, and make us worthy of the good things which he hath promised:

That he will illumine us with the light of understanding and of piety, and with the descent of the Holy Spirit:

That the Lord our God will send down the blessing of Jordan and sanctify these waters:

That this water may be unto the bestowing of sanctification; unto the remission of sins; unto the healing of soul and body; and unto every expedient service:

That this water may be a fountain welling forth unto life eternal:

That it may manifest itself effectual unto the averting of every machination of our foes, whether visible or invisible:

For those who shall draw of it and take of it unto the sanctification of their homes:

That it may be for the purification of the souls and bodies of all those who, with faith, shall draw and partake of it:

That he will graciously enable us to perfect sanctification by participation in these waters, through the invisible manifestation of the Holy Spirit:
