Sunday Blessing: In The Evening

O God, our father, take from our minds this night the worries and anxieties which would keep us from sleeping. Help us to make up our minds bravely to deal with the things which can be dealt with, and not to worry about the things about which we can do nothing.
Take from our hearts this night the feelings which would keep us from resting; take from us all discontent, all envy and jealousy, all vain and useless longings for the things which are no for us.
Take from our bodies the tension which would keep us from relaxing; and help us lean back in the clasp of the everlasting arms.

Into Thy hands we commit our loved ones, knowing that, even if they are absent from us they are forever present with Thee. Into Thy hands we commit ourselves that in Thy keeping, in light and in dark, in life and in death, we may be safe.

Hear these our prayers, through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen
