'Publicarum precum profestalium: in & pro sancto ministerio Ecclesiæ S. Patakinæ, majorem partem p[ro] t[empore] elaboratarum, cætera recognitarum. XII Paria, in duas Hectades relata: Paria item VI ... precum conceptarum à Samuele P. Varadi. Ann. 1725-26-27.'

The prayers themselves, which are Protestant, are in Hungarian, the title and preface in Latin. There are two sets (hectades) of six pairs of prayers (morning and evening) for each of six days, followed (at p. 136) by six more pairs rather shorter.

Part are drawn from the Bible or liturgies, part are original.

One prayer is added in a later hand on p. 193.
