Prayer on Waking
O God, and Mary, your mother,
who have brought me and mine safe
from the depths of sleep to another day,
bring us safely
through every trouble of this day and protect us,
body and soul from all evil.
I rise up with God,
may He rise up with me,
may his arm be round me,
waking, sleeping and working.
O my God, you love me,
you’re with me night and day.
I want to love you always in all I do and say.
I’ll try to please you, Father.
Bless me through the day.
Father in heaven,
I give you today,
all that I think and do and say.
And I unite it with all that was done,
by Jesus Christ, your dear Son.
Prayer to your Guardian Angel
O Angel of God,
my guardian dear,
to whom God’s love commits me here,
ever this day be at my side,
to light and guard, to rule and guide.
