prayers for the morning

In the Name of the + Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.

Our Father.

Hail Mary.

I Believe.

O God, Thou art my God, who hast made me for thyself. O Lord, Heavenly Father, to thee I devote my heart, and my entire life. Grant me thy grace, I implore thee, that his day I may live as in thy presence, and walk in the path of thy commandments, following the example of my Saviour Christ, and beding made like unto him. Give to me thy Holy Spirit that, trusting only in him, I may overcome those sins which beset me.

Vouchsafe, O gracious God, to me and to. . . such blessings as we need both temporal and spiritual. I ask in the Name and through the merits of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

O Lord, our heavenly Father, Almighty and everlasting God, who hast safely brought me to the beginning of this day: defend me in the same with thy mighty power; and grant that this day I fall into no sin, neither run into any kind of danger; but that all my doings, being ordered by thy governance, may be righteous in thy sight. Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

May the Almighty and merciful Lord + Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, bless and preserve me, and bring me to life everlasting. Amen.
