Night Prayer

O God, your unfailing providence sustains the world we live
in and the life we live: Watch over those, both night and day, 
who work while others sleep, and grant that we may never
forget that our common life depends upon each other's toil;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

This is lovely! May I post it on our church's Facebook page from time to time? I'll cite your authorship in any way you say (Twitter handle, actual legal name, etc.). Whether you say yes or no, thank you!
Certainly, although I didn't write this prayer. It comes from the 1979 Episcopal Book of Common Prayer, p. 134. Thanks!
