A Prayer for Monday, from the New Zealand Prayer Book

God the source of eternal light,
shed forth your unending day on us who watch for you;
that our lips may praise you,
our hearts bless you and our lives glorify you;
through our Saviour Jesus Christ.

Psalm 3

  LORD, how many adversaries I have! *
how many there are who rise up against me!
  How many there are who say of me, *
“There is no help for him in his God.”
  But you, O LORD, are a shield about me; *
you are my glory, the one who lifts up my head.
  I call aloud upon the LORD, *
and he answers me from his holy hill;
  I lie down and go to sleep; *
I wake again, because the LORD sustains me.
  I do not fear the multitudes of people *
who set themselves against me all around.
  Rise up, O LORD; set me free, O my God; *
surely, you will strike all my enemies across the face, you will break the teeth of the wicked.
  Deliverance belongs to the LORD. *
Your blessing be upon your people!
