Prayer for Friday Evening.

Blessed be the Lord God, who only doeth wondrous things! And blessed be
His glorious name for ever: and let the whole earth be filled with His
glory! Daily will I praise the Lord, and at eventime my mouth shall thank
Him while I have any being. For when I cry with my voice, He hears me,
and gives ear to my supplication. When I pray, He attends to my voice.
The Lord is my refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
Therefore do I laud and magnify Thee, Eternal God, that Thou hast this
day so mercifully kept me from every harm and evil. My heart is glad and
my soul glorifies Thee for Thy goodness and mercy. Ever shall my tongue
speak of Thee and say, Blessed be the Lord, and blessed be Thy holy name!
I pray Thee, graciously pardon, wherever I have this day sinned against
Thee, and grant me and mine Thy protection during the coming night. Be
Thou my shield, and my shade upon my right hand. O Lord, preserve me from
all evil, preserve my soul. Be gracious unto me, for in Thee do I put my
trust. I trust in the Lord, and cry to God, the Highest, to God Who
endeth all mine affliction. Behold, He that keepeth Israel shall neither
slumber nor sleep. He will guide my steps on the paths of righteousness,
that I slip not and my feet do not falter. He will not suffer my feet to
be moved, and His word is a light unto my path. Therefore as I lay me
down, I will not be afraid of sudden terror, neither of the desolation of
wicked people, when it cometh. For Thou keepest my foot from being taken,
and deliverest me from the snares of death. O Lord God, lift upon me the
light of Thy countenance, that I may lie down and sleep in peace, and
dwell in safety under Thy protection. For Thou alone, O Lord, can help
me. In Thy name will I lie down to rest and let my eyelids slumber. Thou,
O Lord, wilt again awaken me with rejoicing, to the glory and praise of
Thine eternal majesty; through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
