A Prayer for Saturdays from the Book of Common Prayer

John Wesley prayed the Book of Common Prayer every day, morning, noon and evening. I love Saturday's collect because it reminds us what today (Saturday) is  and what tomorrow, Sunday, is.

Almighty God, who after the creation of the world rested from all your works and sanctified a day of rest for all your creatures: Grant that we, putting away all earthly anxieties, may be duly prepared for the service of your sanctuary, and that our rest here upon earth may be a preparation for the eternal rest promised to your people in heaven; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
