Keep us this night, eternal God, from the anxieties and tensions of darkness. Whether awake or asleep, let our thoughts reflect Your holy will. Preserve us from all terrors of the night, from restlessness and sorrowful thoughts, from fretfulness and imaginary fears. Let us awake tomorrow renewed with strength, and cheerful in spirit. May we arise with worthwhile thoughts, living lives that reflect Your glory, the spirit of service to others, and the comfort and joy of our families.
