Devotional Material Used by Davis in Prison
ALMIGHTY God, who hast given us grace at this time with one accord to make our common supplications unto thee; and dost promise that when two or three are gathered together in thy Name thou wilt grant their requests; Fulfil now, O Lord, the desires and petitions of thy servants, as may be most expedient for them; granting us in this world knowledge of thy truth, and in the world to come life everlasting.
Hymn #177 (first two stanzas of four):
GUIDE me, O thou great Jehovah, / Pilgrim through this barren land; / I am weak, but thou art mighty; / Hold me with thy powerful hand.
Open now the crystal fountains / Whence the living waters flow; / Let the fiery, cloudy pillar, / Lead me all my journey through.
Hymn #178 (three stanzas of six):
WHENE'ER the angry passions rise, / And tempt our thoughts or tongues to strife, / To Jesus let us lift our eyes, / Bright pattern of the Christian life.
To do his heavenly Father's will / Was his employment and delight; / Humility and holy zeal / Shone through his life divinely bright.
Thy fair example may we trace, / To teach us what we ought to be; / Make us, by thy transforming grace, / O Saviour, daily more like thee.
