Prayer upon rising in the morning

Having risen from sleep I thank thee all Holy Trinity for in the abundance of Thy goodness and patience, Thou has not become angry with me for my laziness and sinfulness, nor has thou destroy me together with mine iniquities.  Instead thou has raised me from the gloomiest of sleep that I may rise up early and glorify Thy power.  Enlighten now the eyes of my mind and open Thou my lips that I might learn Thy words, understand Thy commandments, accomplish Thy will, glorify Thee in heartfelt confession and praise Thine all Holy Name of the father and the Son and the Holy Spirit now and ever and unto ages of ages.
 
Amen
