Prayer Before Sleep

we give you now the day as it has been

with all its hopes fulfilled and all those deferred

we give you now the day as it has been
for all that was done
and all that was left undone
it is over now and we leave it in your very capable hands, it is enough.
now we give you the night that is ahead of us
keep our bodies, minds, and spirits in complete safety
hold us in the hollow of your hand.

Reveal the night to be Yours, o God.
When we cannot see anything else, you are there.
