Today’s Morning Prayer

Stephen the ProtomartyrO Eternal God and King of all creation, Who has granted me to reach this hour, forgive the sins I have committed in deed, word, and thought; and cleanse, O Lord, my humble soul of all impurity of flesh and spirit, and grant me, O Lord, to begin this day in peace; that, rising from my lowly bed, I may please Your most holy name all the days of my life, and thwart the enemies, fleshly and bodiless, that war against me. And deliver me, O Lord, from vain thoughts and evil desires which defile me. For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory: of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, now and ever, and unto the ages of ages. Amen.
