Definition
the closing prayer for God's blessing of the congregation offered by a clergyman at the end of a worship service
  • How he solicits heaven, Himself best knows: but strangely-visited people, All swoln and ulcerous, pitiful to the eye, The mere despair of surgery, he cures; Hanging a golden stamp about their necks, Put on with holy prayers: and 'tis spoken, To the succeeding royalty he leaves The healing benediction.
    4.3 — Act 4 Scene 3 — England. Before the King's Palace (62% in)
