A Prayer for the Evening

O Lord, support us all the day long, until the shadows
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 thy mercy, grant us a safe lodging, and a holy rest,
and peace at the last. Amen.

(BCP 833)


Perpetua said…
One of my favourite evening prayers, which I often used at funerals too.
One of my favorites, too, Perpetua. What a lovely idea to use it at a funeral. Thanks!
