A most difficult, strange week,
full of new feelings and fears,
has drawn to a close.
If you like you can pray with me this evening.
Lord, hear our prayer. And let our cry come unto you.
Visit this place, O Lord, and drive far from it all snare of the enemy;
let your holy angels dwell with us to preserve us in peace;
and let your blessing be upon us always;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Guide us waking, O Lord, and guard us sleeping; that awake we may watch with Christ, and asleep we may rest in peace.
Lord, you now have set your servant free to go in peace as you have promised;
For these eyes of mine have seen the Savior, whom you have prepared for all the world to see:
A Light to enlighten the nations, and the glory of your people Israel.
Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit.
The almighty and merciful Lord, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, bless us and keep us.
