Devotion Aids

These devotion aids are for use in your home devotions and study.

Martin Luther's suggestion for the Morning Blessing

In the morning, as soon as you get out of bed, you are to make the sign of the holy cross and say:

       "God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit watch over me. Amen."

Then, kneeling or standing, say the
The Apostles' Creed and The Lord's Prayer. If you wish, you may in addition recite this little prayer as well:  Martin Luther's Morning Prayer.

After singing a hymn perhaps (for example, one of the Ten Commandments) or whatever else may serve your devotion, you are to go to your work joyfully.

Martin Luther's suggestion for the Evening Blessing

In the evening, when you go to bed, you are to make the sign of the holy cross and say:

        "God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit watch over me. Amen."

Then, kneeling or standing, say the
The Apostles' Creed and The Lord's Prayer. If you may, you may in addition recite this little prayer as well: 
Martin Luther's Evening Prayer


Then you are to go to sleep quickly and cheerfully.
