I give thanks to thee O all-wise God for thy loving kindness and solicitude for me,
in allowing me, in thy infinite mercy, to cross safely the abyss of the past night,
and to see the bright scene of the day.
I pray thee to grant me strength to weather the ominous raging tempest of
passions and demons. Amen.
Morning Prayer of Thanksgiving
