In this portion of her prayer, Jane prays for “a truly Christian Spirit.” That spirit is one that looks like Jesus, our “highest Example.” She prays for that “temper of Forbearance & Patience” that Jesus exemplified in his life and death. The reason: to prepare “for the spiritual Happiness of the life to come” and “secure . . . the best enjoyment of what this world can give.”
Give us Grace to endeavour after a truly Christian Spirit to seek to attain that temper of Forbearance & Patience, of which our Blessed Saviour has set us the highest Example, and which, while it prepares us for the spiritual Happiness of the life to come, will secure to us the best enjoyment of what this world can give.
