Almighty God, we thank You for bringing us safely to the end of this day. We offer You the work of our hands as a sacrifice before Your sight.
We make this prayer through Christ our Lord.
Father of mercy, may our hearts never waver from loving Your law.
Lead us on through the darkness to the dawning of eternal life.
We ask this through Jesus Christ.
May He support us all the day long, till the shades lengthen and the evening comes and the busy world is hushed and the fever of life is over and our work is done – then in His mercy – may He give us a safe lodging and a holy rest and peace at last.
