Lord, thank you for my life today and the blood that is running through my veins. I thank you for my confinement because I know without a shadow of a doubt that you saved my life from destruction. I ask you, Lord, to reveal all trickery and deceit and let all hidden things be revealed to me. I have the faith, Lord, that you will protect me from those who seek after my soul. Let those be turned back who seek my hurt. I thank you that I can come and hide myself in you in times of trouble, and a flood of great waters will not reach me. Amen.
