A Prayer for the evening

Lord God,
At the end of this day,
I give thanks for Your protection and love.
I pray for the comfort of the sick and the dying,
relief for the poor and rest for the tired.
Lord, mercifully accept the souls of the departed
into Your heavenly kingdom.

Sweet Jesus,
Forgive me for the sins I have committed against You.
Protect me this night and strengthen me for tomorrow.

In the name of the Father and of the Son
and of the Holy Spirit.
