Most high and mighty Ruler of the universe, by whom I have been established and preserved; I thank and praise You for Your favor shown to our fathers and mothers, and for Your faithfulness that has continued toward their children and their children's children. Indeed, You are a covenant-keeping God; there is no shadow of turning with You. I especially thank You for Your great love in sending Your Son to be the Savior of the world, and in calling me out of my sins into fellowship with Him. Grant me Your Holy Spirit, so that I may grow continually in thankfulness toward You, as also into the likeness of Your Son Jesus Christ our Lord.
I bless You, for You have blessed me in my calling. Teach me the lessons of contentment; to serve You gladly wherever I am, even in my failures. O Lord, You are a strong tower of defense to Your servant against the face of my enemies. I give You praise and thanksgiving, for my deliverance from those great dangers that are all around me. I acknowledge it is of Your goodness that I am not delivered to them as a prey. AMEN
