God, Maker of all creation, accept my prayers of appreciation and petition from a sinner, and deliver me from any fatal fall into darkness and from all enemies, visible or invisible. Lord, who loves everyone, by Your great mercy, You have sent Your only son, our Lord, Jesus Christ, for the salvation of all, and by Your Holy Cross, have cancelled the debt of our sins and defeated the powers of darkness. Penetrate my body with Your power and wrap my heart with love in You, that I might always gaze upon You and be guided by Your eternal light. I give unending praise and thanks to You, eternal Father, to Your only Son and to Your all-holy, good and life-giving Spirit, now and forever and ever. Amen.
