Morning Prayer    
Almighty  God, give us grace that we may cast away the works of darkness, and put upon us the armor of light, now in the time of this mortal life in which thy Son Jesus Christ came to visit us in great humility; that in the last day, when he shall come again in his glorious majesty to judge both the quick and the dead, we may rise to the life immortal; through him who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Ghost, one God, now and for ever. Amen.  - Book of Common Prayer

Midday Prayer     
Lord Jesus Christ, Seed of the Woman, crush the head of the wicked one who wages war against me this day. Give me grace to overcome his lies and temptations. This I ask in Your Holy Name I pray. Amen.

Evening Prayer
Father, You who love the world so much that You gave us Your only begotten Son for us sinners. Show us Your love this night and help us to never betray Your love. In the Name of the Word who became flesh, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit as One God, now and forever. Amen.
