Evening Blessings ✨






O Lord support us all the day long, until the shadows lengthen and the evening come,
and the busy world is hushed, and the fever of life is over, and our work is done.
Then, in thy mercy, grant us a safe lodging, and a holy rest, and peace at the last.
Amen

– From Saint Augustine’s Prayer Book

Renew me this night in the depths of sleep

  



Renew me this night in the depths of sleep,
set free my dreams of the unknown.
Safeguard this time of resting, O God,
enfold me in the darkness of the night. 


~ J. Philip Newell, Celtic Benediction

We ask tonight Your watchful care



  

All Holy Lord, in humble prayer
We ask tonight your watchful care
And pray that our repose may be
A quiet night, from perils free.

~ Isaac Watts

May the grace of the night’s stillness be mine






May the grace of the night’s stillness be mine 
may the grace of the moon’s guidance be mine 
may the grace of heaven’s vastness be mine 
to renew my soul in sleep
to enlighten my dreams in the night
to open my spirit to eternity 
until the angels of light awaken me
until the morning angels awaken me.

Prayer by J PHILIP NEWELL ~ Celtic Benediction

Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love,

“Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love,
for I have put my trust in you.
Show me the way I should go,
for to you I lift up my soul.
Rescue me from my enemies, Lord,
for I hide myself in you.
Teach me to do your will,
for you are my God;
may your good Spirit
lead me on level ground.”

– Psalm 143:8-10

Prayer is like planting a seed.

“Prayer is like planting a seed.
Don’t dig it up to see how it is doing!
Pray for it. Release it by giving thanks.
Begin acting like you already have it!”

~ Iyanla Vanzant
