On this Advent Friday here is a Benedictine prayer for the nighttime (that also works when things seem dark and gloomy…)
“Now in the fading light of day,
Maker of all to You I pray,
That with Your ever-watchful love,
You guard and keep me from above.
Help and defend me through the night,
Danger and terror put to flight.
Never let evil have its way,
Preserve me for another day.
Father Almighty this be done,
Through Jesus Christ, Your Son,
Who in one Spirit I adore,
Who reigns with You forevermore. Amen.”
grace, peace & nighttime prayers
