Upon waking up, a Christian sanctifies the first moments of the day by thanking God and putting in his hands all the day’s difficulties, activities, concerns, sorrows, and joys.


Christ our King!
Thy Kingdom come!

Our Father

Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name.
Thy Kingdom come;
thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread;
and forgive us our trespasses
as we forgive those who trespass against us;
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil. Amen.

Hail Mary

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee; blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

Prayer to Begin the Day

My Lord and Father, inspire my thoughts, words, and actions, and accompany them with your aid, so that I undertake all my activities and carry them through according to your will and out of love for you. I ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
