Prayer for Friday Morning.

Blessed be God, my Maker! Blessed be God, my Savior! Blessed be God, my
Comforter! Who giveth unto me my health, my life, and every blessing; my
very present help and my protection. Thou hast kept me according to Thy
great and most blessed compassion during this night now past against the
onslaughts of Satan, and preserved me in health. I beseech Thee, Heavenly
Father, through Jesus Christ, Thy dear Son, take me this day also into
Thy divine protection, and shield me that no evil may assail my life. For
into Thy hands do I this day and all days commend my body and soul, my
thoughts, words, and deeds, all that I do or leave undone, my going out
and my coming in, my walks and ways, my rising up and my lying down, my
will and counsel, my thoughts and desires, my faith and profession, the
end of my life, the day and hour of my death, my passing away and my
resurrection. O Lord God, do Thou with me as Thou wilt: for Thou knowest
what serves best Thy glory and my salvation. Keep me in Thy fear and in
the true knowledge of Thee. Protect me from the deeds of unrighteousness.
And if perchance and by reason of my frailty I sin against Thee, I pray
Thee take not from me Thy mercy; turn not from me Thy grace; withdraw not
Thy help. For there is none other God nor Helper but Thee, and as there
is none before Thee, there is none after Thee. Thou art the first and the
last, Alpha and Omega, and there is none other God beside Thee. Therefore
do I call only upon Thee: may Thy goodness rule over me. Cause me to hear
Thy loving kindness in the morning; for in Thee do I trust. Lead me on
the paths of righteousness, that I may not walk in the counsel of the
ungodly, nor stand in the way of sinners, nor yet sit in the seat of the
scornful, but that my heart may ever delight in Thy word and
commandments, and meditate upon them day and night; through Jesus Christ,
our Lord. Amen.
