An Evening Prayer – Martin Luther

“We give thanks unto thee,luther
heavenly Father,
through Jesus Christ,
thy dear son,
that thou has this day so graciously protected us,
and we ask thee to forgive us all our sins,
and the wrong which we have done,
and by thy great mercy defend us from all the perils and dangers of this night.

Into thy hand we commend our bodies and souls,
and all that is ours.

Let thy holy angel have charge concerning us,
that the wicked one has no power over us.


Martin Luther

    Great! I pray this with my son most nights during ‘Bible time’ before bed.
