Christ, through whom all things were made,
sustain all creation.
Christ, exalted in the lowest and the least
give us humility.
Christ, present in the poor and the oppressed,
fill us with compassion.
Christ, forsaken in the hungry and the homeless,
minister to them through our hands.
Christ, present where two or three are gathered,
be known among us.
Christ, present in word, sacrament and sign,
grant us peace.
Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy Name;
thy kingdom come;
thy will be done;
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation;
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom, the power, and the glory,
for ever and ever. Amen.
Lord our God,
at the ending of the day,
and in the darkness and silence of this night,
cover us with healing and forgiveness,
that we may take our rest in peace;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
We will lie down in peace and take our rest;
for you alone, Lord, make us dwell in safety.
