ANON POST: Lutheran prayers in 19th century Germany

My MC is a young man living in a small town in 19th century Germany. I
don't think his religious upbringing (Lutheran) was particularly intense,
probably fairly perfunctory, but I'm curious as to what prayers he
might/most likely would be familiar with from growing up, apart from the
standard Lord's Prayer. (Mealtime prayers, prayers before bed, prayers
specifically for children, etc.) Does anybody have any ideas? I'm looking
for something that's comforting because it's familiar, not necessarily
due to actual content.

Germany", "prayers Germany" "prayers Lutheran" + variants on 19th centur
