Let It Be....
Although it will be morning when most of us read this prayer, I offer it anyway, as beautiful prayer of letting go and letting God....
Night Prayer (source The New Zealand Prayer Book)
it is night.
The night is for stillness.
Let us be still in the presence of God.
It is night after a long day.
What has been done has been done;
what has not been done has not been done;
let it be.
The night is dark;
Let our fears of the darkness of the world and our own lives rest in you.
The night is quiet.
Let the quietness of your peace enfold us,
all dear to us,
and all who have no peace.
The night heralds the dawn.
Let us look expectantly to a new day,
In your name we pray.
