Morning Prayer for Arising from Sleep

Oh Master and Holy God, who is beyond our understanding: at Your word, the light has come forth out of the darkness.

In your mercy, yesternight, You have given us restful night-long sleep and raised us up to glorify your goodness and to offer to You our plea. Now, in your own tender love, accept us who adore You and give thanks to You with all our hearts.

Please grant us all our requests, if they lead to salvation; give us the grace of manifesting that we are children of light and day, and heirs to your eternal kingdom.

Also in the abundance of your mercies, Dear Lord, remember all your people; all those present who pray with us; all our brethren on land, at sea, or in the air, in every place of Your kingdom, who call upon your love for mankind.

Upon all, pour down your great mercy, that we, saved in both body and soul, may persevere unfailingly; and that, in our confidence, we may extol your exalted and blessed Name now and forever. Amen
