A start to the day.
Kept and Commended.
Into the New Day.

Here it is in kinetic typography.

I thank you, my heavenly Father, 
through Jesus Christ, your dear Son,
 that you have kept me this night
 from all harm and danger. 
Keep me this day also
 from sin and every evil, 
that all my doings and life 
may please you. 
Into your hands I commend
 my body and soul and all things. 
Let your holy angel be with me, 
that the wicked foe
 may have no power over me.

Luther's prayers
Martin Luther's prayers


  1. Love these prayers. Here's the one I pray every morning...
    Dear Lord Jesus, Thank you for this day, for my sleep and for the many blessings you've given. I ask now Lord Jesus that you would put your angels 'round about us, stay the hand of the evil one from us, and keep us all safe. Help us Lord, to walk in the fullness of Your Spirit, to do Your Will, and to be part of the Bride that ushers in the soon coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. For all these things we give you praise and honor and glory in Jesus' Name. O that you would bless me indeed and enlarge my territory,that Your hand would be with me and keep me from evil that I may not cause pain. I believe that You will open to me Your Good Treasure and that you would bless the works of my hands, and that blessing would fall on everything I do. I know that eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor has entered into my heart the things that You have prepared for those who love You. Your blessing is the ultimate value in life, and I throw myself into the river of Your Will, and Power, and Purpose for me. All my other needs are secondary to my desire to be wholly immersed in what You desire to do in and through me and around me for Your Glory. No matter what happens today Lord, You are at work in my life and that is all that matters! You will perfect that which concerns me. Amen.
