O God, it is by your gift that evening follows day and that rest restores us after labor, while we rejoice to receive these blessings, make us mindful that they come from your gracious hand.  Amen.

Prayers from St. Augustine

Holy God, your knowledge of me exceeds what I grasp or see in any moment; you know me better than I know myself.  Now, help me to trust in your mercy, to see myself in the light of your holiness, and grant me the grace that I may have true contrition, make an honest confession, and find in you forgiveness and perfect remission.  Amen.

O Lord support us all the day long, until the shadows lengthen and the evening come, and the busy world is hushed, and the fever of life is over, and our work is done.  Then, in thy mercy, grant us a safe lodging, and a holy rest, and peace at the last.  Amen.

Grant us patience, O Lord, to follow the road you have taken.  Let our confidence not rest in our own understanding but in your guiding hand; let our desires not be for our own comfort, but for the joy of your kingdom, for your cross is our hope and our joy now and unto the day of eternity.  Amen.

Yours, O Lord, is the day; yours also is the night; grant that the Sun of Righteousness may abide always in our hearts, to drive away all wicked thoughts and to relieve our fears, that we may always know the light of Jesus' presence.  Amen.

Lord Jesus, who traveled with the disciples on the road to Emmaus: Be with us on the way, that we may know you in the scriptures, in the breaking of bread, and in the hearts of all whom we meet.  Amen.

Prayers from Saints, clergy and "regular" people

I give God thanks for all that was good in the day that is ending.  I ask God's mercy on my sins and omissions this day.  I seek God's peace in my home and in all the world this night.  Amen.
