Sunday Prayer of Dependence


To thee, O Master who lovest all men, I hasten to rising from sleep; by thy mercy I go forth to do thy work, and I make my prayer to thee, help me all times and in all things; deliver me from every evil thing of this world and from pursuit by the devil; save me and bring me to thy eternal kingdom. For thou art my Creator, thou dost inspire all good thoughts in me; in thee is all my hope, and to thee I ascribe glory, now and for ever, and unto the ages of ages.[1]
