Prayer for Aid Against Perils

This prayer comes from the Book of Common Prayer, which is basically a collection of books that dates back to before the Reformation.  It is used by all protestant religions and also the Catholic church to this day.

Lighten our darkness, we beseech thee, oh Lord;

And by thy great mercy defend us from all perils

and dangers of this night;

For the love of thy only son,

Our Savior, Jesus Christ.
