A praier to be said in the Morning when one awaketh. Our helpe be in the name of the Lord, who hath made heauen and earth.
O My God and father, I most humblie praise and thanke thee for this, that of thine infinite goodnesse and mercie, it hath pleased thee to watch for me this night whiles I slept, pre∣seruing me from so manie kinds of dangers, wherevn∣to this miserable life is subiect. O Lord I beseech thee bring into my memorie thy other great and innume∣rable benefits also, according as I may be able to com∣prehend them, to the end that I may likewise render thanks for the same, least I be vngratefull towards thy maiestie, as thou hast done me this good, not to for∣get that thou alone hast preserued me from all incon∣uenience. And herewithall I beseech thee most grati∣ous father, through thy mercie, to continue this thy fatherlie care, which thou hast for me, vntill such time as I shall rest in that happie sleepe, whereof they re∣ioice which sleepe in peace, through our Lord Iesus Christ thy sonne, who in the vnitie of the holie Ghost, liueth and reigneth God with thee eternallie: So be it.
