0 Lord, our heavenly Father, we are grateful to You for Your watchful care during the hours of sleep and rest; and that You have brought us in peace and safety to the light and duties of another day. 0, may Your Holy Spirit lead us to entire submission to Your will; and Your mighty power keep us from evil and danger, and enable us to live very near You. May we commit ourselves entirely, depending on You, to be guided by Your wisdom. Deal with us, we pray You, according to Your loving kindness and tender mercies. May we look to You for strength to support us during the trials and temptations of this day, that we may be spiritually strong and supported by Your grace in every duty of this day. We pray You to be very gracious to our loved ones and lead them by Your council in the path of duty and safety”, and reveal unto us all our duty as we owe it to God and man. Amen.
