O Christ our God, who at all times and in every hour,

in heaven and on earth, are worshiped and glorified;

who are long-suffering, merciful, and compassionate;

who love the just and show mercy upon the sinner;

who call all to salvation through the promise of blessing to come;

O Lord, in this hour receive our supplications and direct our lives

according to Your commandments.

Sanctify our souls,

hallow our bodies,

correct our thoughts,

cleanse our minds;

deliver us from all tribulation, evil, and distress.

Encompass us with your wisdom that, guided by it,

we may attain to the unity of the faith

and to the knowledge of Your unapproachable glory,

for You are blessed unto ages of ages.  Amen.

O Lord our God, for when, during this day, I have sinned,

whether in word or deed or thought,

forgive me all, for You are good and love mankind.

Grant me peaceful and undisturbed sleep,

and deliver me from all influence of evil.

Raise me up again in proper time that I may glorify You;

for You are blessed with Your Only-begotten Son and Your All-Holy Spirit,

now and ever, and unto ages of ages.  Amen.

Now that the day has come to a close, I thank You, O Lord,

and I ask that the evening with the night may be sinless;

grant this to me, O Savior, and save me.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit.

Now that the day has passed, I glorify You, O Master,

and I ask that the evening, with the night may be without offense:

grant this to me, O Savior, and save me.

Both now and ever, and unto ages of ages.  Amen.

Now that the day has run its course, I praise you, O Holy One,

and I ask that the evening with the night may be undisturbed;

grant this to me, O Savior and save me.

Lord, have mercy.

Lord, have mercy.

Lord, have mercy.

Lord, have mercy.

Lord, have mercy.

Lord, have mercy.

Lord, have mercy.

Lord, have mercy.

Lord, have mercy.

Lord, have mercy.

Lord, have mercy.

Lord, have mercy.

O Lord, grant me to greet the coming of the day in peace,

help me in all things to rely upon Your holy will.

In every hour of the day reveal Your will to me.

Bless my dealings with all who surround me.

Teach me to treat all that comes to me throughout the day with peace of soul

and with firm conviction that Your will governs all.

In all my deeds and words, guide my thoughts and feelings.

In unforeseen events, let me not forget that all are sent by You.

Teach me to act firmly and wisely, without embittering and embarrassing others.

Give me strength to hear the fatigue of the coming day with all that it shall bring.

Direct my will, teach me pray.

And, Yourself, pray in me.  Amen.

Arising from sleep, I thank you, O Most Holy Trinity,

that, for the sake of Your great kindness and longsuffering,

You have not had indignation against me,

for I am slothful and sinful.

Neither have You destroyed me in my transgressions.

But You have shown Your customary love toward mankind,

and have raised me up as I lay in heedlessness,

that I might sing my morning hymn and glorify Your sovereignty.

Do now enlighten the eyes of my understanding,

open my ears to receive Your words,

and teach me Your commandments.

Help me to do Your will,

to sing to You,

to confess You from my heart,

and to praise Your All-Holy Name:

of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit,

now and ever, and unto ages of ages.  Amen.
