                  My Heavenly Father, I thank You, through Jesus Christ, Your
                  beloved Son, that You have protected me, by Your grace. Forgive, I
                  pray, all my sins and the evil I have done. Protect me, by Your
                  grace, tonight. I put myself in your care, body and soul and all
                  that I have. Let Your holy angels be with me, so that the evil
                  enemy will not gain power over me. Amen.
