The Apostles' Creed (2nd Century AD)
I believe in God the Father, Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth;
And in Jesus Christ, His only begotten Son, our Lord; Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, Born of the virgin Mary; Suffered under Pontius Pilate, Was crucified, dead, and buried. The third day He arose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven; And is seated at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; From there he shall come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit; The holy Christian (orig. "catholic" or "universal"); the communion of saints; The forgiveness of sins; The resurrection of the body; And the life everlasting. Amen.
Prayer of General Thanksgiving (adapted From The Book of Common Prayer)
Almighty God, Father of all mercies, we your unworthy servants do give you our most humble and hearty thanks for all your goodness and lovingkindness to us, and to all people.
We bless you for our creation and preservation and for all the blessings of this life. But above all, we thank you for your inestimable love in the redemption of the world by our Lord Jesus Christ. We also thank vou for the means of grace and for the hope of glory.
We beseech you now to give us that due sense of all your mercies, that our hearts may be truly thankful, and that we may show forth your praise, not only with our lips, but in our lives; by giving up ourselves to your service, and by walking before you in holiness and righteousness all our days; through Jesus Christ our Lord, to whom with you and the Holy Spirit be all honor and glory, world without end. Amen.
