Eternal, almighty God and Father!
I most heartily praise and thank Thee,
that Thou hast graciously,
by Thy holy angels,
preserved me from all harm and danger both of body and soul,
during the past night and all previoustime;
and I most heartily pray Thee,
forgive me all my sins wherewith I have offended Thee,
and enlighten my heart with Thy Holy Spirit,
that I may daily grow and increase in Thy knowledge.
Grant me grace also,
that I may, during this day,
avoid all sin and shame,
and be found in Thy divine will,
in order that I may so walk as to be preserved from all evil,
may always and constantly keep Thee in my heart and thoughts,
and when the time of my departure approaches,
grant that I may fall asleep in the true knowledge of Thy dear Son Jesus Christ,
unto a blessed and eternal life.
