My God, to you my heart is lifted up, as I commend unto your protecting care those dearest on earth to me. Guard well my husband and my children, all the members of my family, and all the inmates of my home. Preserve them from sorrow and misfortune; hold suffering and ailment far from us, that we may bear neither the dangers of the day nor the terrors of the night.
Preserve me from idleness and foolish yearning for worldly pleasures; teach me that I my home I shall find my purest joys, my most pleasurable emotions in acts of womanly devotion, self-forgetfulness and simplicity. Bless me and those I love with health and cheerfulness; shield us all from temptation and sin.
Preserve forever the tranquility of our happy home and the peace that dwells in our hearts. For this I beseech you, for this I have set my heart before you, my Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer. Amen.
