collect for the martyrdom of king charles

Blessed Lord, in whose sight the death of thy Saints is precious, we magnify thy Name for thine abundant grace bestowed upon thy servant, King Charles of England: by which he was enabled so cheerfully to follow the steps of his blessed Master and Saviour, in a constant meek suffering of all barbarous indignities; even then, according to the same pattern, praying for his murderers, to the same our only Mediator and Advocate, Jesus Christ thy Son our Lord. Who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end. Amen.
