DAILY PRAYERS

How the head of the family should teach his household to pray in the morning and evening, to ask a blessing and say grace at the table.

The Morning Prayer

In the name of God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Amen.

I thank You, my heavenly Father, through Jesus Christ, Your dear Son, that You have kept all harm and danger away from me last night; and I pray that You would also protect me today from sin and every evil, that my life and all my behavior may please You. Into Your hand I entrust my body and soul and everything else. Let Your holy angel be with me, that the devil may have no power over me. Amen.

The Evening Prayer

In the name of God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Amen.

I thank You, my heavenly Father, through Jesus Christ, Your dear Son, that You have graciously kept me today, and I pray that You would forgive me all my sins, wherever I have done wrong, and graciously protect me tonight. Into Your hand I entrust my body and soul and everything else. Let Your holy angel be with me, that the devil may have no power over me. Amen.

To Ask a Blessing

The eyes of all look expectantly to You, O Lord, and You give them their food in due season. You open Your hand and satisfy the desire of every living thing. Psalm 145:15

Lord God, heavenly Father, bless us and these Your gifts, which we receive from Your bountiful goodness through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.

To Say Grace

Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for He is good. For His mercy endures forever. Amen. Psalm 106:1

We thank you, Lord God, heavenly Father, through Jesus Christ, our Lord, for all Your kindness, who lives and reigns eternally. Amen.
