A prayer before bedtime – Prayer of the Week

 Prayer of the Week.

“You might recognise this from Call the Midwife, where we hear the nuns singing it in the
background in several episodes. It’s from Night Prayer (Compline) which has been used for hundreds of years and is especially relevant now when so many of us are having disturbing dreams.”

Before the ending of the day
creator of the world we pray,
that you with steadfast love would keep
your watch around us while we sleep.

From evil dreams defend our sight,
from fears and terrors of the night.
Tread underfoot our deadly foe,
that we no sinful thought may know.

O, Father, that we ask be done,
through Jesus Christ your only Son, and Holy Spirit, by whose breath,
our souls are raised to life from death.’

God bless – Rev. Dr Sue Pulko
