As darkness falls we rejoice in Your presence with us;

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, His mercies never come to an end.
He desires that life and love are there for all and that none might suffer. 
Would that the world wanted the same.

Lord, grant us a quiet night and a perfect end.

Compline (night prayer) - Wednesday, 9 June 2021

In the presence of the Creator, with Jesus our brother and King and the Holy Spirit (our paraclete) we look at the reflections on the lake that is our day and reflect on the detritus of sin beneath the surface.

As the Lord restores all to its sinless state we take our rest and look to fare better tomorrow.

As we engage in the Examen:

take us to our beds and sleep that we might rise and make God's love known in us to all we meet tomorrow.

Our day is like a sandwich with the good and the not so good containing all that the day has been.
Taking all that the day has been we thank you for all it was we lay it, with thanks,
at Your feet as we head for bed looking towards a new day in which to serve You.

The Lord, our God, is One; praised by day and by night;

We place into His care our spirit and entrust Him with our lives;
for He is with us and we are His whether we wake or sleep.
