William Laud was one of the Caroline Divines, who were influential during the seventeenth century through the reign of Charles I and then, later, after the Restoration. Among the many Caroline Divines are Lancelot Andrewes, Jeremy Taylor and Herbert Thorndike.
Keep us, O Lord, constant in faith and zealous in witness, that, like thy servant William Laud, we may live in thy fear, die in thy favor, and rest in thy peace; for the sake of Jesus Christ thy Son our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
