Evening Prayer to God the Father


O eternal God and Ruler of all creation, You have allowed me to reach this hour.

Forgive the sins I have committed this day by word, deed or thought.

Purify me, O Lord, from every spiritual and physical stain.

Grant that I may rise from this sleep to glorify You by my deeds throughout my entire lifetime, and that I be victorious over every spiritual and physical enemy.

Deliver me, O Lord, from all vain thoughts and from evil desires, for yours is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, now and ever, and forever.
