Martin Luther’s Morning Prayer

I give thanks to you, heavenly Father,

Through Jesus Christ your dear Son,

that you have protected me through the night

from all harm and danger.

I ask that you would also protect me today

from sin and all evil, so that my life and actions may please you. 

Into your hands I commend myself: by body, my soul, and all that is mine. 

Let you holy angel be with me, so that the wicked foe may have no power over me.

Amen

from Luther’s Small Catechism

Martin Luther’s Evening Prayer

I give thanks to you, heavenly Father,

Through Jesus Christ your dear Son,

that you have graciously protected me today.

I ask you to forgive me all my sins,

where I have done wrong,

and graciously to protect me tonight.

Into your hand I commend myself: my body, my soul, and all that is mine.

Let you holy angel be with me,

so that the wicked foe may have no power over me.

Amen.

from Luther’s Small Catechism
